Hello, my name is Joe Brooks, and I've been a tennis instructor for 15 years, by way of Seattle, Hawaii and Chicago.
I'm originally from Seattle, where I graduated from Franklin High School. I then attended Eastern Washington University where I walked on the tennis team my freshman year. After graduating I moved to Hawaii, where I taught at the Waikoloa Village Hilton beach resort and the Mauna Lani Bay resort for 4 years. Hawaii is where I truly discovered my passion for teaching/coaching tennis.
Summer times, while i wasn't in Hawaii, I was in Chicago teaching at Butterfield Country Club. I helped teach 200 kids and their parents daily. My time in Chicago also contributed to my growing passion for teaching and coaching kids to a top level.
Now I am here at TCSP and taking everything I've learned through 15 years and implementing it on the courts here at the best facility I've ever been apart of.
Growing up in Seattle I'm a die hard Seattle sports fan. The Super Sonics, Storm, Sounders, Mariners, the Seahawks, and their respective athletes have been instrumental in my life. Learning the important value of teamwork from many of these great teams I've been fortunate to grow up with has helped me to be a better coach.
In my tenure with TCSP, I've coached two Adult USTA teams to second place in the Nation. This success has paved a new avenue of coaching for me and I'm really enjoying it.
