Savannah, GA. (August 19, 2015) – We are pleased to announce that after an extensive search involving applicants from 22 states, Chris Kader has accepted the position of Director of Tennis for The Landings Club. Born and raised in Geneva, Ohio, Chris’ ties to the game of tennis go back to his earliest days and as Chris stated, “It’s in my blood.”
Chris’ father was an accomplished PTR professional who introduced him to the game at age five. He excelled as a competitive player as a junior and into his high school years. He went on to play Division I college tennis at Elon University where he majored in corporate communications. After college, Chris decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and worked at various clubs in Ohio for the next five years as an assistant and head professional. In 2005, he took an opportunity to join the team at Coral Ridge Country Club as the Head Professional under Will Hoag. Will is regarded by many as the preeminent tennis professional in the state of Florida and an icon in the industry. Chris was Will’s right hand man for nearly 10 years when he had the opportunity to take on the role of Director of Tennis at The Beach Club in Palm Beach where he has served the membership until now.
Upon accepting the offer to join our team, Chris said, “I am eager to get to The Landings Club to build on the work that’s been accomplished and help create a tennis and court sport program that is the very finest for our members, one that earns a stellar reputation similar to what The Landings Club has established for golf and athletics.”
