SRA Welcomes New Tennis Pro Greg Cooper
Southampton Recreation Association is so excited to welcome new Head Tennis Pro, Greg Cooper. Greg began playing tennis at 3 years old. His first match was at the age of 8 where he competed against 12 and under players at a Penn State University junior tournament. The match didn’t last long and he proceeded to lose with a smile on his face just loving the game and competition. Little did his family know that he would develop a sectional ranking that eventually landed him on the Penn State Tennis Team.
Since then, Greg found that his calling is working with families and teaching all levels of tennis. His love of tennis led him to Michigan where he became the Director of Junior Development at Norton Pines Athletic Club. He helped develop 6 students to a national ranking and many students went on to play for Division I universities like: Penn State, University of Michigan, Michigan State, Boston College, and others. From there, Greg moved across the state of Michigan to become the Director of Racquet Sports at Orchard Lake Country Club. At OLCC, he directed a program of over 250 juniors which ranged from 4 to 18 years of age. Along with a strong junior program, Greg worked with USTA teams, taught Cardio tennis, ran USTA tournaments, and directed platform tennis in the winters.
Now, he has settled here in Richmond to be closer to family and hopefully enjoy nicer weather soon! He is excited to be a part of Southampton and is looking forward to working with the great families here. Adult Lessons and Youth Spring clinics start in April. Please refer to the tennis section for a complete list of Spring/Summer Tennis Clinics for Youth and Adult. Greg is available for private lessons as well. The monthly tennis social is returning to SRA starting on April 5.
