Bob Gardner's Most Accomplished Players..

Since the year 2000 when Bob Gardner began teaching in Granville, he has had the good fortune to coach many fine tennis players.  The following is a group of  "Terrific Twelve"  tennis players that have been coached exclusively by Bob, and their accomplishments. Their success is due in large part to being taught the proper stroke technique, utilizing proven strategies as their games developed, and of course, their hard work and desire to excel.

In his junior program, Bob has had the good fortune to have coached the only 2 players from Granville who have ever qualified to play in the Ohio High School singles championships:  John Gardner and Patrick Boyd.

Bob is very proud of the fact that for the last 6 years his students have held the #1 Singles position on the Granville Boys' Varsity tennis team.  Additionally, for the last 4 years, Bob’s tennis program has produced the #1, #2, and #3 singles player for the Boys’ Granville High School tennis teams, the #1 and #2 players for the Girls' Varsity tennis team, and more singles and doubles positions on the Varsity and Junior Varsity teams than any other tennis program.

Join the winning team and sign up with Bob Gardner.  I’ll work with you to become
Terrific Number Thirteen !!!
