Assistant Pro - Chris Duffy

Welcome back High Lane Tennis! I am really excited to work with you this year as an assistant pro. As a player, I was on the Varsity Tennis Team at Hamden Hall, the club tennis team at Connecticut College, and I currently hold USTA national rankings in both singles and doubles. As a coach, I have experience working with both kids and adults as a tennis specialist at the Watitoh summer camp in MA - where I helped both kids and adults with the game of tennis; as a camp counselor for NewHytes - a tennis, mentoring, and education program in New Haven; and finally, as an assistant to the pro for HLC. I love tennis and I want you to love tennis at HLC this summer.

Assistant Pro - Taylor Morris

My name is Taylor Morris, I am currently a first year student at Bentley University and playing on their tennis team. I have been a member at HLC  since I was 8 years old and have played on the HLC tennis team and have won multiple club championships. I have worked at HLC with weekly crafts and run children tennis clinics at Tennis Central.
