John Natolly Racquet Director

We have a generation of children living a sedentary lifestyle. Who hasn’t tried to wrestle a cell phone from their grandchildren’s hands? Harbor Hills USPTA Elite Professional and Tennis Director John Natolly calls it an inactivity pandemic among our youth.

“Racquet sports,” Natolly says, “always rate high by the experts for health benefits and support of an active lifestyle.” Harbor Hills provides group tennis lessons, private instruction, USTA leagues, interclub matches, pickleball fun and much more. John is especially excited to welcome youngsters to learn and enjoy the game he calls “the lifelong sport.”

Juniors ages 4 through 17 are invited to participate in classes at Harbor Hills on our Har-Tru (soft) courts. Instruction is open to students of all levels. Saturday morning sessions are May 21, May 28, June 4 and June 11. Member cost for ages 7-17 is $100, guests $125. Cost for children ages 4-6 is $75 for members, $100 for guests.

Classes are geared to encourage a love of the sport. Training includes proper fundamentals, games and basic drills. Junior Tennis Camps will also be offered this summer. Sessions are June 13-16 and July 18-21. Contact John for more info at 352-804-8400.

The spirited Harbor Hills 2022 Club Tennis Championships were played to cheering crowds in April. Kim Zahan and Frank Altman breezed to victory and won the Men’s Doubles Championship. Returning champs Janis DeCoster and Denise Collier claimed the Ladies Doubles Championship in an exact repeat of last year. Also for the second year, capturing the Mixed Doubles Championship in a nail-biter were Joanne Drzewiecki and Steve Stephens. Congratulations to all the players for competitive matches that bring fun and excitement to our courts.
