For as long as he can remember, tennis has been a major component in Gordon Paul's life.  Whether competing as a junior and later a collegiate player, writing tennis columns for The Star-Ledger of Newark, traveling the pro tour or working as a teaching professional, Gordon brings years of experience and continued enthusiasm to the game.

"It's funny how things have turned out in my life," said Gordon. "No matter what direction I take, my path always brings me back to tennis. When I was writing and playing tennis, I remember people in the tennis community suggesting that I become a tennis teaching professional."

Gordon is certified by both the PTR (Professional Tennis Registry) and the USPTA (United States Professional Tennis Association). He is also USTA Level 1 certified pro.

"I've had some great opportunities to travel with friends on both the ATP and WTA tour, understanding the game and learning what it takes to become a champion," said Gordon, "The most important thing is that the game has changed and will continue to change. It's important to keep up with new ideas."

Following his destiny, Gordon has attended numerous workshops and tennis programs around the country, working with some renowned coaches over the years among them the late George Bacso, former President of the USPTA.. "The most important thing I've learned from the best coaches in the world is to understand my job, which is to help guide my students and allow them to think for themselves and become creative on the tennis court. Roger Federer, the world's No. 1 player, hits 26 variations on his forehand shot many of them he learned himself and all based on his position to the ball.''
