About Northstar Tennis

Thank you for your interest in Northstar Tennis at Northstar California Resort.

The tennis program at Northstar was established over 40 years ago, and since then, thousands of visitors to Northstar California have enjoyed a variety of tennis offerings, from professional tennis lessons to group camps (for adults and children), all designed to provide a thrilling summer activity while improving your game.

We’ve grown the program through our attention to proper tennis technique, exciting and unique tennis instruction, and a commitment to providing instructors who will not only help with your forehand, but who will make you smile while they do. Last year we taught over 2,000 guests and provided over 100 camps.

For the past 30 years, the tennis program was run by Zeke Straw, with Guillaume Tonelli serving as the head professional for the past eight years. In fall 2016, Zeke Straw retired and Guillaume Tonelli has been chosen as the new tennis director at Northstar California. We look forward to continuing the long tradition of exemplary tennis instruction at Northstar California for years to come!
