Carl Brodnax

Tennis Coach

“Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.”


- Arthur Ashe


Ritu Duenwald

Director of Finance & Compliance

“The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can be a rainbow in somebody else's cloud. Somebody who may not look like you. May not call God the same name you call God - if they call God at all. I may not dance your dances or speak your language. But be a blessing to somebody. That's what I think.”


- Maya Angelou


Samantha Hayes

Director Development & Communications

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”


                                                 -Howard Thurman


Skyler Metviner

Senior Manager of Education

“Happiness is not to be found in knowledge, but in the acquisition of knowledge.”

-Edgar Allan Poe


Erickah Tertulian

Tennis Coach, Stamford Lead

“Life waits for no one." 



Jonathyn Young

Tennis Coach

“Experience should be a plus as long as it doesn't become complacency. If you say, 'We're not going to change; we didn't do it that way before,' then you've become too old.


- Marv Levy


Willie Brooks

Tennis Coach

“Start each day with a grateful heart.”


Kirina Gair-MacMichael

Director of Youth Development & Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

"You are one person, but when you move, an entire community walks through you - you go nowhere alone." - Rupi Kaur
