Fun tennis Instruction for Florida’s Gulf Coast!

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 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 turned his love of the game into a business and started Beach to Bay Tennis in 2000. Coach Jack has a professional coaching certification and achieved USTA singles ranking in the top 20 in Florida and USTA singles national ranking in his age group.

When starting with Beach to Bay Tennis, a conversation with Coach Jack will help you to determine which instruction methods will help you accomplish 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 many other sports, families can participate together and not just be spectators.
