Brandon Pike

Project description

dash

Tennis has always been a part of Brandon’s life. He grew up on a tennis court. Brandon has been teaching tennis since the age of sixteen. He cannot remember a day that he was not doing something tennis related.

Brandon loves the sport of tennis for many reasons. One reason he continues to teach tennis is because he enjoys seeing kids grow up as tennis players. There is nothing more satisfying in Brandon’s mind than to start a child out in the game of tennis and years later see that person blossom into a well balanced individual who shares a common love for the game.

Brandon currently works with the High-Performance and Junior Tournament groups at the Winter Park Tennis Center.
