The Valdosta-Lowndes County Parks & Recreation Authority is welcoming a new assistant tennis pro, who’s bringing an exciting new program with him.

Gary Cimperman comes to VLPRA from New Orleans where he was in charge of junior development, adult beginner classes, and cardio tennis.  He helped build the largest and most intensive summer tennis camp program in the state of Louisiana and created a new Junior Team Tennis league for local youth.

Cimperman will bring that expertise to the VLPRA Tennis program, where he plans to work with the juniors program and create a new and exciting Cardio Tennis Program.  Cardio Tennis is a high-energy fitness class that incorporates tennis fundamentals with cardiovascular exercise to burn calories while having fun.

In addition to classes, Cimperman is also available for private lessons.  He holds certifications with the United States Professional Tennis Association and the United States Professional Tennis Registry.  He’s currently the USPTA Southern Assistant Pro of the Year and has published articles for various regional and national tennis magazines. 

VLPRA Executive Director George Page says Cimperman is a great addition.  "We are thrilled to have Gary on our team,” Page says.  “Our tennis program is fantastic, and he’s bringing even more fun, fresh ideas.”

Cimperman is already teaching clinics and accepting lessons.  Call the VLPRA Tennis Center at 229-333-1868 to schedule a lesson with Cimperman or with Head Pro Keith Childree.  Find out more about our Tennis Program by clicking on "Tennis" at the bottom of the page.
