Our Tennis Pros
Get to know our team, and who will be training you.
I have had a lifelong passion for the sport of tennis. Although tennis is well defined by rules and techniques I view the work with each of my students at the individual level. Each of us have different athletic experiences and we learn and are motivated differently. I can help you discover and reach your individual tennis potential.
I have 10 years of tennis instructional experience, was a state finalist in tennis while at Lilberty High School, and played Division 2 tennis while at William Jewel College.
Hi! My name is Ian Cunliff and I’m one of the tennis instructors here at Northland Racquet Club.
