Meet Sadie Spahn

  1. What position(s) do you currently hold at Elite and any you have held in the past?

I am a Tennis Professional at Elite Sports Club-Brookfield.

  1. How long have you been playing tennis?

I’ve been playing tennis for over 20 years.

  1. What made you want to become a tennis pro?

I love working with people, specifically children, and sharing my love for the sport and the game. It is a privilege to teach a life-long sport to those passionate about it and spread my knowledge of the sport I have gained from Brookfield Elite to the future generations.

  1. What is your favorite part about your job? About tennis in general?

I love watching students progress in their skill and the relationships I have built throughout my involvement in the tennis community. I also love the competition aspect and the mental strength tennis has brought me through my years of playing competitively.

  1. What activities do you participate in at the club or outside of the club besides tennis?

I am currently enrolled in graduate school at UW-Whitewater with a desire to gain a master’s degree in special education with emphasis in autism and applied behavioral therapy. When I am not at the club or studying, I work with children with developmental disabilities and autism conducting behavioral therapy. I also enjoy staying active, getting outside, and spending time with friends and family.

  1. How would you encourage someone who is considering tennis for the first time?

I would encourage them to gather their friends, grab a racquet and a ball, and go have some fun. Tennis is a social sport where fun is just as important as competition, allowing you to meet new people and make new connections!

  1. What advice do you give people who are just starting out in tennis?

Don’t compare yourself to others or be timid to competition! Tennis is supposed to be fun – everyone just wants to get out there and hit.
