Tennis at The Guiford Yacht Club
GYC is proud to provide great tennis opportunities for our membership. Come down and hit some balls with our pro, Billy Previdi, or utilize some court time with a friend.
We have the most beautiful setting for tennis on the shoreline!
GYC is fortunate to have Billy Previdi available as our pro. Billy has been a head pro in CT since 1981. He is a native of NY and learned his tennis at the prestigious Port Washington Tennis Academy where among his contemporaries were John McEnroe and Vitas Gerulaitis. Billy attended St. John’s University in NY on athletic and academic scholarship. Billy was named Dunlop Pro of the Year in 1996. He was also inducted into the Branford Sports Hall of Fame in 2010 after coaching the girl’s tennis team for 19 years with a record of 210-38 and a first State Championship for the team. Billy continues to compete as a player. He has been a member of USTA New England’s Atlantic Coast 45’s team for 6 years. Billy and his son, Matthew, were ranked #1 in New England and #20 in the nation in Father-Son doubles in 2008. Billy is a member of the USPTA and has been published in their magazine.
He and his wife, Jill, reside in Branford and have two sons, Matthew and Christopher. Billy’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.
