Let me introduce myself
I am Traci Thomas, owner of Thomas Tennis. I have been involved
in tennis in Cobb County for over 30 years. Growing up, I played
junior tennis at Sweetwater Park, as well as basketball and softball.
After graduating from college, I went to work for the Cobb County
Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs Department. One career
was not enough for me. For 15 years, I officiated
Women’s College Basketball AND coached tennis in subdivisions on
the side. In 2004 I gave up officiating to dedicate more
time to tennis. Currently I spend about 10 to 15 hours per week
on the court in addition to managing the Lost Mountain Tennis
Center. Since 2007 I have been a member of the Volkl Advisory Staff
Why I teach
Athletics has brought me many things in life:
fun, exercise, friends, and even a college education.
Sportsmanship, competition, and the drive to succeed that I have
gained from sports has made me into the entrepreneur I am
today. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to teach and
pass along the things I have learned throughout the years.
Seeing my students excel at tennis gives me the energy to take
on the work schedule I have. That is my truest reward.
A Statement of Thanks
I want to thank everyone for the past 22
years; for your loyalty, support, trust and friendship. You have
all helped make me the person I am today. While my motto has
always been “work hard, play hard”, without you, the players,
the journey would not have been worthwhile.
See you on the courts!!! And remember...
"Got time to look, Got time to go!"
