Meet John Hendrickson, SYC Tennis Director

Hello SYC! My name is John Hendrickson and I am incredibly excited to be joining this incredible Club! I’ve been residing here in Nevada County for the past 10+ years and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Just a little about my background. I have been a USPTA Tennis Professional for almost 20 years. I have over 10 years experience as a Tennis Director. Plus I have over 8 years experience as a NASM Certified Personal Trainer.

My goal is to offer a Tennis Program that is fun, challenging and has something for everyone. No matter if your a beginner, intermediate, or advanced. There will be Clinic for you. Or if you need some personal help, Private Lessons are available. Social Tennis? You better believe it. Don’t have a game set up? Then Drop’n Tennis is the answer. Just show up at the scheduled times and get your swing on. Junior Tennis? Yes indeed. Junior clinics are ready to go for all ages and levels. I look forward to meeting all of you! If you don’t see me on the courts then I’ll be in the gym training clients or working out myself. Please join me into building an amazing Tennis Community here at SYC, but most importantly let’s have fun in the process!
