Considered by many to be one of the best tennis coaches of all time, Nick Bollettieri has changed the way the game is played and taught at every level. He has helped shape the careers of Andre Agassi, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, Jim Courier, Boris Becker, Monica Seles, Anna Kournikova, Tommy Haas, and other tennis champions. His accomplishments have been imitated but never equaled.
In 1978, he founded the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy—now IMG Academy, the first full-time tennis boarding school, providing young athletes the opportunity to train at a higher level while pursuing their academic aspirations with a focus on intense physical training, total immersion and ongoing competition among the most talented players in the world. Now the world’s largest and most advanced multi-sport training and educational institution, IMG Academy has hosted, trained and taught some of the world’s top athletes. Bollettieri continues to develop the next crop of young champions and works to bring tennis to inner-city children.
The 2019 New York Tennis Expo will be a celebration of all things tennis, and will provide free fun for the whole family. From free tennis clinics to informative speaker sessions, from bouncy houses to a tennis fashion show, there will be tons of activities all day long at NYCB LIVE on February 9.
