Spend your Summer on the Sound

Tennis at The Guilford Yacht Club

GYC is proud to provide great tennis opportunities for our membership. Come down and hit some balls with our pro, Paul Malafronte ("Coach Mal"), or utilize some court time with a friend.

We have the most beautiful setting for tennis on the shoreline!

GYC is fortunate to have Paul Malafronte available as our pro. Coach Mal is completing is 2nd year as the Boys Tennis Coach at Guilford High School and is looking forward to offering programs for ALL ages. As a disciple of the Previdi System, you will see many similar programs that Billy Previdi ran in the past. Some of the core activities Coach Mal will be offering this summer are: 

  • Point Play 4, 5 & 6 players. 
  • Singles and Doubles Clinics
  • Private and Group Lessons
  • Tennis Exhibitions

Coach Mal's love for tennis and enthusiasm on the court is contagious.

He is happy to work with individuals at any level on a private or semi-private basis.
