Sonny Kierulf is a certified PTR tennis professional from Chicago, IL where he began his 26 year career in the tennis industry. He started as an instructor in a grass-roots, community tennis association in hopes to teach character to at-risk you through sports. He continued to gaining extensive experience as a staff pro, head pro and director of tennis at park districts, country clubs as well as large tennis corporations. He also spent time as a head high school coach and as an assistant coach at a Division I university. Though, Sonny has taught a wide range of players, spanning in age from 3 to 83 years old at all levels, he particularly enjoys instructing both competitive club players and new players who are hungry to learn a sport for a lifetime.
