Welcome To Beach To Bay Tennis!

Jack Carey, a lifetime resident of St. Petersburg, was raised in a tennis-playing family.  His mother, Delight (Treffeisen) Carey, was a championship high school player who was inducted into St. Petersburg High School’s Hall of Fame.  Jack’s parents instilled a love of the game and healthy competition in Jack and his sister, Jill.  After working for years in the hospitality industry in the Tampa Bay area, Jack decided to turn his love of the game into his business and started Beach To Bay Tennis in 2000.   Coach Jack has earned his professional coaching certification, and achieved the USTA-Singles National Ranking in his age bracket.

The Beach To Bay Tennis Philosophy

Coach Jack teaches the game of tennis to all ages in three primary ways:  individual instruction, in group clinic setting, and through participation in match competitions. Coach has found that using a combination of all three methods is an effective way for any player to learn the skills, rules, and etiquette required to play the game.

When starting with Beach To Bay, a conversation with Coach Jack will help you to determine which of these methods you will take part in to begin accomplishing your goals for playing the game.  Whether you or your child are just beginning or returning to the game or have been playing for many years, you and Coach Jack will evaluate and adjust your training to suit your individual needs.

Tennis is an outstanding sport that can promote and instill individual confidence, team cooperation, physical fitness and FUN!  Unlike with many sports, whole families can participate together, and not just be spectators.
