Our Certified Tennis Pros

JASON TARDIF comes to us from Jay, Maine where he started his tennis career by organizing a varsity tennis program at Jay High School. An important part of his time after high school was spent attending the University of Maine at Farmington. He began teaching tennis in the summer of 1996 at The Balsams Grand Resort Hotel in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire for three summers. In the spring of 1998, Jason coached the Mt. Blue High School girl’s tennis team while he gave private and group lessons at the University of Maine at Farmington Health and Fitness Center. Jason is certified by the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) and has experience working with beginners to nationally ranked players. He is also a professional racquet stringer and can suggest the proper tension and type of string that is best suited to your game. Jason’s focus for players will be on skills, strategy, and the mental toughness necessary for match situations. (back to top)
