TENNIS TEAM COACHING STAFF
Joanne Gardner, Head Coach
Meet our Head Tennis Coach and Instructor at BTSC - Joanne Gardner! Coach Joanne has been a lifelong tennis player - starting to play at the age of 10. She learned her skills at Harding Park then went on to compete with the Ursuline High School and YSU Tennis Teams. She has been coaching since 2000 having spent 10 years at Ursuline High School, then moving to coach the Boys and Girls Tennis Teams at Boardman where she is in her tenth season. Here at BTSC, we have been fortunate to have her for 8 years. She leads our Youth Tennis Team for age groups 10 & under through 18 years (only $30 for members) and coordinates weekly free clinics throughout the summer season for Youth, Women/Beginners, and Men/Intermediate-
Advanced. Coach Joanne also organizes Mixed Doubles Tournaments for the Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day holidays, as well as a Parent Child Tournament in August.
Coach Jo is a Youngstown native and currently resides in the area with her husband Rob. She is the proud mom of 2 children - Sarah and Garrett - and loves playing Tennis, Pickleball, and MamaNet!
Wonder how she got bitten by the tennis bug? When Joanne was 10 years old, she was walking home from the playground and spotted an old racket in a drain...she and her older brother ran home for a fishing pole and went back to “fish” it out! Tennis has been a passion ever since!
