For the past 30 years, Kay Merrell has been a tennis teaching professional at the Winter Park Tennis Center! Kay began her tennis career in Virginia, but found the Florida climate was more to her liking. Her tennis highlight was to compete twice in the U.S. Open in the 35 singles.
After moving to Florida, she became part owner and manager of the Maitland Field Club, as well as to open a new tennis/golf shop on Park Ave in Winter Park. After teaching tennis at the Jewish Community Center, the Winter Park Tennis Center received the best gift ever – Kay Merrell as our teaching pro!
During her 30 years, she has promoted junior tournaments and events, round robins and working women’s tournaments. She continues to coach different women’s teams of various levels. In addition to clinics for all ages, she is available for private and semi-private lessons. Kay is USPTA certified and is very happy to focus on teaching tennis and clinics at the Winter Park Tennis Center
