City of Gulf Shores Announces New Head Tennis Professional

 Juan Cruz Soria

The Gulf Shores Recreation Department is excited to welcome Juan Cruz Soria to its staff as the Head Tennis Professional at the George C. Meyer Tennis Center.

Juan has an extensive background in tennis. He competed professionally throughout South America and Europe, is a former D1 athlete for the University of South Alabama, and has over eight years of experience coaching. If he looks familiar, it may be because he coached tennis this past year at Gulf Shores High School.

"We are excited to have Juan on our team!" Said Bernie Gilliam, Tennis & Pickleball Coordinator. "Together, we are working on several new programs we know the community will enjoy!"

Juan is now available to teach private lessons and clinics. Please call or stop by the George C. Meyer Tennis Center front desk for more details on booking a lesson. The George C. Meyer Tennis Center is located at 2049 W 2nd St. The front desk number is 251-968-1431.
