Mats Wilander, tennis legend, conducted his very own tennis clinic in front of a packed gallery; adults and juniors alike welcomed the privilege to be on the same court with a seven-time, Grand Slam champion. A captivated crowd gathered on the sidelines, observing a true tennis expert as he demonstrated the strategies and finer points of the game.

Novices and advanced players equally benefitted from this superstar’s talent; helping them sharpen their technique with everything from serves, backhands, offensive and defensive maneuvers, etc.

It’s not too often when a club is visited by someone of superstar caliber, and a special occasion like this will be remembered for years to come.

Mats Wilander (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈmatːs viˈlanːdɛr]; born 22 August 1964) is a former World No. 1 tennis player from Sweden. From 1982 to 1988, he won seven Grand Slam singles titles (three at the French Open, three at the Australian Open, and one at the US Open), and one Grand Slam men’s doubles title (at Wimbledon). His breakthrough came suddenly and unexpected (even in Sweden), as he won the 1982 French Open. More or less simultaneously with countryman Björn Borg‘s decision to quit tennis. In his home country, together with Stefan Edberg, he is commonly regarded as the best Swedish tennis player after Björn Borg. (From Bio)
