In 2010, when he was 25 years old, Adam Ford was named head pro at the DeWitt Tennis Center on the campus of Hope College in Holland, Mich., and he continues to rack up top-notch experience and credentials. As a teaching pro (he holds the highest ratings in both the PTR and USPTA), Ford has developed several highly ranked juniors in the USTA Midwest Section, and he was named PTR Michigan Pro of the Year in 2011. He was one of the youngest coaches to pass the USTA High Performance Certification Program, and he recently was named the head women’s tennis coach at Hope. Ford also is the founder and owner of Baseline Video LLC, which makes tennis-related videos for the industry. “Adam is an incredible success in the tennis industry, and a rising star who will make a lasting impact in this business,” says Jorge Capestany, manager of the DeWitt Tennis Center.
