Greg's career in Tennis is impressive; former collegiate All Conference / All American, USPTA Ohio Pro of the Year and USPTA Midwest Pro of the Year numerous times. He has received the USTA/USPTA National Community Service Award.
Greg was the Tennis Director at Western Reserve Racquet Club for six years where he grew the program to one of the finest in the area. Prior to that he served as Head Tennis Professional at Parkview Racquet Club. Greg's career includes working for Benetton Sportsystem selling Prince and Ekelton products.
Greg has responsibility overseeing all aspects of the Club's racquet facility, programs and staff.
"I first saw CVAC in 1992 when I was Tennis Director at Western Reserve. We had a fire and our members and Pro Staff were able to use CVAC while Western Reserve was being rebuilt. I was very impressed with the size and scope of CVAC then and am thrilled with the many improvements to the facility since that time" says Aten.
Many programs are offered; drop-in play programs, a five level Junior program and clinics customized to each group's needs. Members are encouraged to play in leagues and take private lessons to fine tune specific aspects of their game. Certain programs are available to non-members on a limited one-time basis. "Our strategy in having a specific program open to non-members for one session is to let the person test drive our product" exclaims Aten. "We are confident most will want to join the Club afterward and participate in many of the programs we offer".
Greg, his wife Sharon and their two children reside outside of Akron.
