Meet RRC's Head Tennis Pro

Nicole Grunwald

I have been coaching/ mentoring players of various levels for 20 years. Most recently being the Director of Tennis at Hillendale Country Club, prior to that the Assistant Head professional at Baltimore Country Club for 4 years and the JV tennis coach at Notre Dame Prep since 2011.  As a junior I was #1 in Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic Region for consecutive years in all age divisions. At 10 yrs old I met “Coach Pete” who at the time was fresh off of the professional circuit himself and the Head Coach of the Maryland State Training Center and Travel Team, which I played on and together we represented Maryland successfully in various tournaments. At that time he became my personal coach and helped carve my professional playing career. At 14 I started playing professionally on the ITF/ WTA Circuit and obtained a world ranking.
Now that I no longer compete, I enjoy working with all skill levels and all age groups from pee-wee juniors to the collegiate and professional circuit in an effort to promote the sport and its wonderful benefits. I appreciate the opportunity to use my skills, experience and love of this sport to coach and help aspiring players perfect their game, reach their full potential or personal success and grow this program – all while having a great time!!!
