Adult Tennis Clinics

A tennis clinic is a group session with instructions to help you become a better tennis player. All clinics are taught by one of our tennis professionals. Our most current clinic information is available on our tennisbookings page, please click HERE to visit tennisbookings. Advance registration helps our professionals plan accordingly, but drop-ins are accepted. Clinics are open to members and non-members, however, members will be served first. Men and women are invited to all clinics unless specifically noted otherwise. In order for a clinic to carry on as scheduled, there is a participation requirement; all clinics require 3 participants minimum.

MAC would like to welcome Damian Sancilio as the new tennis director at the club. Damian brings a wealth of experience to the position as he has been a certified Elite tennis professional with the USPTA for 32 years. Damian has been a director of tennis at 3 different clubs and is excited to bring his knowledge and enthusiasm to the tennis community at MAC. Some of you may recognize Damian as he was the first tennis director at MAC in 1990 when it had recently opened as Robious Sports and Fitness club.

A graduate of the University of Virginia, Damian was a nationally ranked junior out of Richmond, VA who went on to become a scholarship athlete at U.Va, where he played number two singles and was elected team captain. He is also a two-time Richmond City Singles Champion and has been inducted into the Richmond Tennis Hall of Fame and the Douglas Freeman High School Hall of Fame for his achievements in tennis.

Damian also worked on the women’s professional tour (WTA) for 4 years as he coached Sabine Hack to the 1994 French Open quarterfinals and her ranking reached a high of #13 under his guidance. Damian also traveled the world for 6 years as the head coach for the Kuwait Davis Cup team before returning to Richmond to start a family and become partner/tennis director at Courtside West where he established the Sancilio Tennis Academy in 2009. Damian will bring his teaching methodology to the club as he will continue the Sancilio Tennis Academy at MAC.
