Roberto Leon Owner
For Roberto, tennis started early. He began playing tennis as a boy in Chile, where he quickly became the #1 junior player in the country. His skill as a tennis player brought him international recognition, and it led to him being chosen to compete on the Davis Cup team for his home country. In his prime, Roberto competed on the professional tour, competing in many international tournaments including the US Open.
In 1971, Roberto moved to the United States and began teaching tennis at Port Washington Tennis Academy. It was here that Roberto helped hone the skills of legendary players John McEnroe, Peter Fleming and Vitas Gerulaitis.
In 1976, Roberto began working as Tennis Director at the Greenwich Racquet Club, purchasing the facility in 2004. Roberto and his son, Ricardo, own and operate both the Greenwich Racquet Club and Wire Mill Racquet Club and are committed to providing world class instruction to their students.
