Jon (pictured with his tennis-loving kids) founded US OF TENNIS by combining his many years working in corporate IT with his love of tennis to innovate and differentiate.

Originally from the USA, Jon started in basketball and baseball from the time he could swing a bat. He played hoops at varsity levels and scored home runs at state levels before switching to tennis in his late teens and competing at state levels in Idaho.

Jon was coaching tennis in Sydney when an opportunity to work with the Thurgoona Country Club Resort was the tree-change he was looking for. Through a chance collaboration with AATC (Australasian Academy of Tennis Coaches), Jon is now also Regional Development Officer with AATC and looking to grow new coaching talent in regional NSW and VIC.

Developing the next generation of players and collaborating on innovative coaching pathways is at the forefront of US OF TENNIS.
