For those living the WCI lifestyle, we're sure you have seen some of our devoted tennis fans out on the courts every day. With most of our Clubs offering great tennis programs, we thought we'd help your game a bit by offering a quick bag check with some of our esteemed Club Tennis Professionals.
This month we're putting The Colony Golf and Country Club's Tennis Professional, Pieter Kriek, in the hot seat and checking out what's helping him on the courts these days.
