     Jim Klein, Director of Tennis/Head Pro

The JIM KLEIN TENNIS COLLEGE was established at Doylestown Tennis Club in 1995.  Jim is a Top Rated Certified USPTA Pro with a degree in Science of Tennis Instruction from Tyler Junior College, the first accredited tennis college in the nation.   Jim studied under Steve Smith and Vic Braden, internationally-known tennis experts, educators, and personalities, and eventually became a guest instructor for the Vic Braden Tennis College on the East and West coasts.  Prior to coming to Pennsylvania in 1990, Jim taught at Florida’s prestigious Colony Beach Resort.  In 1991 Jim was honored as Pennsylvania’s “Tennis Coach of the Year”.   When Jim came to Doylestown in 1995, he standardized our teaching, training all pros/coaches to teach by the laws of physics. Thus, a student can take a lesson with any DTC pro and will receive the same quality instruction.
