Quinn Borchard: navigating life as a tennis parent, tennis player, tennis coach & more! Plus, advice on junior tennis gear & how to avoid burnout!

Quinn Borchard is living the tennis life in all the ways. As a former top SoCal junior and top college player, he also spent some time playing on the pro & ITF circuit. Now in his 30s, he competes in National Tournaments, has collected a few gold balls and even dabbles in pickleball. Plus, he is the Head Pro at Sunset Hills in Thousand Oaks, CA and has created one of the top young junior programs in the country for kids under the age of 14. On top of all that and maybe most importantly, he is a Dad (and husband!) and has two sons playing tennis at different levels which all equates to the fact he is learning to balance being a dad and a coach for a top up and coming junior player.  In this episode, we talk about the ups and downs of junior tennis -- from the perspective of the kids, from the perspective of the coaches and from the perspective of the the parents. Quinn's son, James, has recently found much success and won the Little Mo's International Tournament last month and is able to discuss the quick success but also how important making it "fun" really is. And what happens when your other kids aren't finding the same success or even talent or desire as the other players in your family?!  We also talk about junior gear and finding the right set up for your junior player -- when to switch to bigger racquets, what strings to try, what shoes are best, etc.  Follow Quinn: https://www.instagram.com/quintothewild/?hl=en  Check out Tennis at Sunset Hills: https://www.sunsethillsclub.com/tennis  If you have any further questions or want to continue the conversation?!
