Castle Pines Village (CPV) has a new summer tennis program for its residents, and is fortunate to have a new tennis pro running the program. Ben Wolfe is a young and enthusiastic teacher and coach who has a winning attitude about everything he does.
Wolfe is a self-taught tennis player who has had a love of the sport since he was in middle school in Michigan. Although he never took a formal lesson, he spent hours hitting the ball at the local tennis court and watched hours upon hours of professional tennis players on television. His passion and dedication allowed him to secure the final spot on the tennis team in his high school, and by senior year, he played in the number one position.
Wolfe began coaching tennis at the age of twenty, and he is looking forward to the challenge of running his own program in CPV. Wolfe currently coaches the girls varsity tennis team at Legend High School. Additionally, Wolfe is a sixth grade Earth Science teacher at American Academy, and his great rapport with the parents and students at the school led him to interview for the position in CPV.
Wolfe’s attitude permeates through his students, and he encourages them to work hard and put in the time necessary to improve. “It’s all about the work ethic. Anyone can be good at this sport if they work hard, regardless of size, speed or initial ability,” he teaches. “Tennis has given me so much, and I want to give back to the sport.”
Wolfe is offering drills, clinics and private and group lessons in CPV throughout the summer and encourages anyone interested to visit his website to sign up. To check out any of the programs offered in CPV, visit BenWolfeTennisandFitness.com or call Wolfe directly at 517-242-1787.
