OSU Men's Tennis is one of the top tennis programs in the country and has been ranked
in the top 5 for the past 8 years.

November 21, 2014: Recent Success of Kobelt Tennis Academy ATP Touring Pro, Peter Kobelt,
Prompts a Visit From USTA National Coach, Stephen Amritraj.
Coach Amritraj is responsible for identifying and working with up and coming American professional players who have the potential to reach the Top 100 on the ATP Tour.
He made his first trip to Columbus to work with Peter for 2 days to help him prepare for his next 3 tournaments in
the Dominican Republic in December. He was very impressed with NATC / KTA's level of coaching expertise and the surprising
number of highly skilled players coming out of such a small community. Three players who learned how to play tennis in New Albany
participated in the 2014 US Open, more than many countries.
Congratulations to KTA WTA Touring Pro Maddie Kobelt

Let the Kobelt Tennis Academy Coaches Create a Developmental Plan for You!
NATC / KTA is proud to have been selected by the world famous IMG Academies / Bollettieri Tennis Academy
to be their only Affiliate Tennis Facility in Central Ohio! Why were we selected?
It took a little over 40 years. Kobelt Tennis Academy has a long history with Nick Bollettieri.......
Paul Kobelt first met Nick Bollettieri in 1968, at age 12, as a student at his tennis academy in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin.
In 1975 Paul had the good fortune to spend a summer working with and learning how to teach tennis from Nick, as one of his
staff instructors in East Hampton, MA. That summer had a strong influence on Paul's coaching style, based on Bollettieri's
expertice in building weapons and developing 10 world #1 players, and has also led to many years of collaboration.
In 1989, Nick introduced Paul to a risng new player at the US Open, Andre Aggasi, and arranged for Andre to test the
unique "Chris" tennis racquet Paul was marketing. In 1991, Nick hired Paul to run his IMG / Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Paris, France.
Upon returning to the USA in 1992, Paul and his family settled in New Albany, where Paul created and ran the tennis program for the
New Albany Country Club for 18 years. During that time, Paul often spent one or two weeks at IMG Academies / Bollettieri Tennis Academy
in Bradenton, Florida learning Bollettieri's latest teaching methods and bringing students from Columbus to the world famous academy.
From 1999-2007 Nick sent 3 of his top coaches to New Albany to conduct 3-day mini-camps and further train Paul and his staff.
In 2004, Paul had the opportunity to show Nick around New Albany. It was with very strong encouragement from Nick, that Paul decided to
pursue his dream of building an affordable tennis club that the whole community could use, and a world class tennis academy for Central Ohio.
New Albany Tennis Center / Kobelt Tennis Academy is the first step in that dream. Thanks for your encouragement and support Nick!
Many players may not be able to go to Florida to train every year, but everyone should go at least once!
Call Paul at 614-855-6230 for details about how you can attend IMG Academies / Bollettieri Tennis Academy.
And when you come back, NATC / KTA will be more than ready to continue your development on the same path.
