TENNIS

Top-notch facilities and top-notch talent make Sarasota Sports Club the premier health and racquet club in the Sarasota area. The club's wide array of unique and wonderful amenities are overseen by a staff that includes world-class tennis instructors.

Located in the hotbed of Florida tennis, within the gated community of the Country Club of Sarasota and near Nick Bollettieri's prestigious IMG Academy, Sarasota Sports Club sports 19 Har-Tru tennis courts, including a stadium court. A full range of tennis programs for players of all ages and playing levels accommodates everyone from four- and five-year-old juniors to 80-year-old adults.

Tennis Director Jeff Otterbein has been teaching for ten years, at notable Northeast tennis clubs, such as Lake Club in CT, Sakonnet Golf Club in RI, and Acoaxet Club in MA. Alongside of his tennis club career, Jeff has also coached at Bishop Stang High School and Roger Williams University. In 2014, he co-founded the South Coast Tennis Academy in Westport, MA and developed the program to well over 100 juniors, competing in USTA Tournaments and Team Leagues in the 14u and 18u age brackets. Jeff works closely with Head Pro Julio Moros, whose four decades of experience includes 30 years of collaboration with International Tennis Hall of Fame member Bollettieri at the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy, which he helped establish in 1978.

In addition to its numerous teams and clinics for Adults, Sarasota Sports Club has a full Junior Development program, open to youngsters of all ages and playing levels, and also elite academy players who aim to compete in college or in the pros. The Elite Academy head pro Sekou Bangoura has eight years of experience at Bollettieri Academy, working with the likes of Andre Agassi and Venus and Serena Williams. He's also coached his son to a No. 1 USTA boys' 18 ranking, collegiate success at the University of Florida, and a rising role on the current ATP Tour.
