Thirty Nine Years of Tennis Coaching Excellence


October November December Message from Coach Sam:  

Hi Tennis Friends,

This past summer I celebrated my thirty-ninth year in the tennis industry. My first employment as a tennis coach was in 1980 with the City of Bay City Parks and Recreation summer camp program.  I've coached at numerous venues over the years and 2019 marks my 39th consecutive summer to be involved in a summer tennis program.  I am delighted to celebrate this milestone with NEISD Blossom Tennis Center in San Antonio, Texas. Check out the Blossom Tennis Center website at

Text message me at 713-818-9109 to start a dialog about your tennis needs.   See you on the court!
