We'll let our Head Tennis Professional introduce himself...
My name is Brad Erlandson and while I was born in Massachusetts (Go Patriots!), I was raised in Volusia County, FL. I developed a love and passion for tennis at a very young age while playing on the tennis court in my grandmother’s front yard. My younger years were spent playing USTA tournaments, watching, and mastering the technique of the sport.
I began my teaching career at a tennis center in Asheville, NC in 2008 where I became PTR certified while maintaining my USTA membership. I played in a variety of leagues and traveled the surrounding states playing in tournaments. After returning back to FL with my wife and infant daughter in 2009, I continued my profession at the FL Tennis Center in Daytona Beach and became the head tennis pro at the David E. Disney Tennis Center in Deland, Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Lake Buena Vista, and Debary Golf & Country Club in Debary. I have enjoyed working with students of all ages, from 4 – 90+ years old, from beginners to advanced players. I have watched some of my younger students grow, mature, fall in love with the sport, and become amazing college athletes as they compete and continue their success into their professional careers. I now devote 100% of my time to Debary Golf & Country Club while promoting many adult and junior program classes – with Cardio Tennis being one of my most popular and exciting classes. I continue to create individualized plans that support the goals and needs of each specific client. I provide professional racquet stringing and re-gripping services to clients as needed.
I have been happily married since 2005 and now have the opportunity to grow the love of tennis in both my daughter and son. Let me help YOU experience the love and passion of the great game of tennis!
