The City of Greeley Sports and Programs team has partnered with two exceptional coaches to provide tennis clinics and camps to the Greeley community.

Coaches

Todd Edwards

Todd Edwards, Tennis Pro and UNC Alum, has over 24 years of coaching experience working with all ages and skill levels. He played singles and doubles at the University of Northern Colorado, winning five conference championships. He played on the ITF Men’s Circuit and Open level tournaments in California, with his highest ranking of 35th.

He then set his sights on coaching the game. He has worked as a Head Tennis Professional and Junior Director for one of the top tennis clubs in Palo Alto, California, and as GM and Director of Tennis at Broadway Tennis Center in San Francisco. He is the founder of Serve It Up, LLC. Todd’s passion for teaching the game comes from not having any tennis lessons himself. He earned a tennis scholarship without any formal tennis training, and he feels like that gives him an advantage to simplify the game he loves so much. He is USPTA certified and has a Sports Science certification. While on his tennis journey, he has had the opportunity to train and work alongside some of the world’s best coaches and players and is ready to share his expertise.

Todd grew up in Sterling, Colorado; he and his wife Rachelle and his daughter Mia love being back home.

Matti Sperry

Matti Sperry has over 12 years of coaching experience. She is a Greeley native, and she played singles for Greeley West and went on to play for 2.5 years for the University of Boulder. Matti held a winning record for the 2.5 years played. She is USPTA/USPTR certified in tennis and sports psychology biomechanics. Greeley was an excellent place to learn how to play, and she wants to bring the excitement back into the community here again!
