“When Ted mentioned he was starting up a new program combining life skills and tennis, I knew it was going to be something special. That’s “Vintage Ted”, always bringing out the best in those around him, both on and off the court. Ever since I met him in Puerto Rico, some 29 years ago, I couldn’t help but be amazed at his selfless, tireless, “example-setting” approach to showing others a fun sport, while subtly sharing valuable life lessons as a bonus. Great for kids, but even better for a distraught 21-year-old, like me. I can’t think of a better person to launch “Tennis from the Heart”… Mr. “5-Hour Energy” himself; Ted Murray.”
George Ronay, former PBI tennis professional
“Ted Murray was the most influential tennis coach for me during my formative years. Not only did he help my strokes become solid and teach me how to play strategically, he also helped my development as an individual. He helped me overcome my temper and learn to be really focused on court. He gave much of his time coaching me at no cost, as my family wasn’t in a position to pay regular rates for private lessons. Without coach Ted’s inspiration and faith in me I doubt that I would have become an All-American at the Coast Guard Academy and had the career I have enjoyed so much.”
Pedro Jimenez, US Coast Guard
Ted Murray was the best tennis director I have ever worked under in my 20 plus year career in tennis. He taught me how to be a great coach, how to communicate effectively with all clients, and how to continually learn and grow, as a professional and as a person. Most important, he is always positive and encouraging while freely sharing his great knowledge of tennis and of life.
