Johnny Wahlborg - Tennis Director
USPTA ELITE Professional

Welcome to tennis at Cross Gates Family Fitness! Our goal is to service our members in every aspect of tennis with programming, activities, equipment, tournaments and league play.  We have a great staff dedicated to giving a wide range of opportunity to start or improve your game of tennis. Communication is a vital part of our ability to make your tennis experience as smooth as possible. Please, contact me if there are any questions, problems, or concerns and I will enjoy working on them with you.  Tennis is the sport of a lifetime that gives people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to play a sport while improving their health.  There is a fair amount of education that is needed to get a person to the level where they can compete.  At that point everyone will know if this is their sport.  We are committed to finding the opportunities needed for all of our participants to get to that level.

Here at Cross Gates Tennis we have a fun atmosphere that consists of clinics, lessons, leagues, socials and tournaments throughout the year.
