As Long Island middle school and high school girls tennis players conclude their fall seasons and PSAL players prepare for the spring season, former Top 10 ATP Tour player and Olympic Silver medalist Tim Mayotte of the Mayotte Hurst Tennis Academy at Cunningham Sports Center in Fresh Meadows is offering a free winter training clinic on Saturday November 2 from 4 to 6 p.m.

The free clinic is open to all girls ages 11-17 who played middle school or high school tennis this fall for a Long Island public or parochial school or last spring for a PSAL school.

It will offer personalized training tips, plus on and off-court winter training drills from the team of teaching professionals of the Mayotte Hurst Tennis Academy. Players are encouraged to wear their school tennis shirts.

Parents and coaches are also invited to attend the clinic for a presentation about their role in the development and training of aspiring young players.

“We applaud the thousands of young ladies who are competing for their schools and want to celebrate their success and help them improve,” says Mayotte, a Wimbledon and Australian Open semifinalist who reached as high as No. 7 in the world in 1988. “We hope they will join us to learn something new and help take their game to the next level.”

A native of Springfield, MA, Mayotte burst upon the pro tennis scene in 1981 when he captured the NCAA Men’s Singles title at Stanford University. During an impressive career, “Gentleman Tim” captured 12 ATP singles titles from 1981-90, with nine of them coming in 1987-88. He defeated Jimmy Connors, John McEnroe, Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras during his career.
