am Dennis Gallas, a professional tennis player and coach with over 25 years
experience. I grew up in Hinsdale,
Illinois. I have two grown daughters,
one of whom played competitive junior tennis for years. My wife and I currently live in South
Florida. I am a Certified Elite Tennis Professional with the United States
Professional Tennis Association and a Certified High Performance Tennis
Professional. I am a Certified Master Professional with the Australian –
American Tennis Institute.
I was both a collegiate player and
8-year competitor on the ATP Satellite Circuit. I have wins over four top 200 ATP tour players. My mentors include the great
Frank Parker, Harry Hoppman, Pancho Seguro, Larry Gottfried and Gabe Jaramillo.
Director of Tennis
I served as the Director of Tennis for
over 15 years for Addison Racquet Club in Chicago, Illinois, Dubuque Racquet
and Country Club in Dubuque, Iowa, and both North River Shores Tennis Club and
Indian River Plantation Resort in Stuart, Florida.
High Performance Academy & Traveling Coach
For the last 12 years, I have coached
top world-ranked International junior and touring professionals and have served
as a personal traveling coach for many of Florida's top junior players. Of those 12 years, the last few were spent as
a High-Performance Coach at Club Med International Tennis Academy in Port St.
High-Performance Touring Coach
Committed to the development of each
player, I left the academy to devote more time to privatized, high-performance instruction. As a touring coach, I understand and value
the importance of Intelligence, Passion, Goal-Setting, Patience, Flexibility,
and a Positive Mind-Set.
I own and operate an international
tennis video-analysis website called worldtourtenniscoaching.com.
And own and operate a business page on
World tour tennis coaching - Facebook
In the past, I have
tested racquets and strings for Wilson
and Tennis Industry Magazine. I have also produced short tennis segments on
Florida's first tennis television show called, Florida Tennis.
Wrap It Up
I am proficient in
both adult and junior instruction, and comfortably coach every ability level. While
I have handled all managerial and promotional aspects of running tennis clubs,
my passion lies in the growth and development of the individual player.
My students would tell
you that I have a mild-disposition, high expectations, dependability and a
sincere passion for seeing them succeed in all aspects of their lives.
is a wonderful game, and whether it’s the competitive route you’re after, or
simply having a more proficient knowledge and technical understanding of how to
play the game, I’d welcome the opportunity to work with you!
