Zephyr Cove Tennis Club now has a new tennis pro in Dave Nostrant, having recently hired him to take over this month.

Nostrant, a veteran to tennis, will bring decades of knowledge and experience to Zephyr Cove, according to a press release. Nostrant’s tennis expertise goes back several years, having played as a young man and into college.

He later taught for Vic Braden in West Germany before becoming director of the Vic Braden Tennis College franchise in St. George, Utah.

In 2004, Nostrant co-founded Court Think Tennis and continued to operate the Vic Braden Tennis College Franchise until 2010.

Since forming Court Think Tennis, now Dave Nostrant Tennis, he has had camps in Nevada, California, Utah, Hawaii, Michigan, Arizona, Wyoming and Wisconsin. “I’m very excited to be there and look forward to the opportunity,” said Nostrant. “I’ll offer a full range of programs.”

Nostrant will give individual and group lessons to all ages and levels and hopes to put on multi-day camps for locals and visitors. “Twice I have been to Dave’s camps in St. George, Utah,” said Carolyn Wright, president of Zephyr Cove Tennis Club Foundation. “Dave has helped to improve my game tremendously. When we were forced to bring in a new pro this year after the passing of our longtime pro Rob Wheatley, Dave’s name quickly topped the list of choices.”

A welcome party is being thrown for Nostrant on May 27, starting at noon at the Zephyr Cove courts. The Viva La Tennis doubles mixer and barbecue is the club’s season opener for all levels and ages. Match play is free for members and $10 for guests. For more information about the club, visit http://www.zctennis.com
