Seminole Lake Racquet Club turning out future tennis stars

SEMINOLE – Some high-level tennis is being played right here in the Seminole area. The Seminole Lake Racquet Club has a full summer program going, and some of those learning there are doing quite well in competition.

The force behind the booming program is pro Krishnan Anandan. The 47 year old has worked at Seminole Lake for about four years of his 30 years in the area. He was born in India and grew up in East Africa where his father worked for the British government. He has played tennis most of his life.

“We have 68 kids in our summer activity camp and another 25 in the tennis camp,” said Anandan. “Many of the young people are in the 13 to 14 age group and we have some good players in the 9 to 10 range also. We also offer programs for adults.”

Anandan teaches full-time at the facility and classes are scheduled year-round. He has helped more than 100 young people get college tennis scholarships.

The results of the pro’s teachings are obvious.

Several Seminole players have had strong showings recently. Joel Samaha, 14, is ranked No. 2 in the state and could well be No. 1 after this weekend’s competition. He won the National Open earlier this year. A 14-year-old girl, Morgan Frank, also is ranked No. 1 and plays in several tournaments. Another young female star is Linsey Dvorak, while Anandan’s son, Brandon, is playing well.
