Hello Mike,

I used to work at Ivan Lendl's club called: Grand Slam Tennis in Greenwich,
Connecticut. I have been there for over 10 years and I don't know if things
have changed or not but...they, like Lendl himself were very, very, very
organized and had standards that all pros and the club operated under.
If you know of or remember Ivan can imagine how a club might look
taking on his "persona".

These standards did NOT impinge upon the pro in terms of personality,
differences and style. The standards were more about structure and appeal to the

At that time he had a contract with Mizuno so each pro wore Mizuno
clothes...we were all given a supply of summer and winter gear.

We all had a club made guidebook that provided the weekly lesson plans, goals
and drills we could use. This provided consistency from week to week and the
students were able to look forward, knowing what aspect of the game we would
be working on.

The club itself was also inviting to the members providing them with
information, highlighting players ,etc.

The desk people were professional but not "stuffy".

They may have a website or you may want to contact them via phone to learn
more about how they operate. I've been away for many years now so I don't know
what has changed and what has not.

I do remember they were very organized, did things for a purpose, kept the
members involved and set the environment up to be professional and personal.

Good luck...if I can be of any further help...let me know!
