Paddle Staff

Mark Ray, director of racquet sports, has been with WCC since 1991. He has been a nationally ranked tennis player in men’s 35s, 40s, and 45s. During the winter months, not only does Mark oversee our popular paddle program, he also is head professional at Great Valley Racquet Club in Malvern.

Vlatko Najdek, our head racquet professional, came to Waynesborough in 2004. He was a nationally ranked tennis player in both his native country of Bosnia and in South Africa, where he spent several years coaching and competing. Prior to joining WCC’s staff, Vlatko taught at the Julian Krinsky School of Tennis at the Gulph Mills Tennis Club. Vlatko is currently in the top 25 men's double rankings of the American Platform Tennis Association (APTA).

Ann O’Shea, director of junior racquet sports, has been at Waynesborough since 2001. Ann returned to the Main Line in 1999, after teaching at clubs in Boston and Atlanta. She has taught hundreds of children of all ages – from true beginners to tournament players – at the Arthur Ashe Youth Tennis & Education Center, and also worked at Aronimink Golf Club before coming to WCC.

Waynesborough has one of the biggest and best racquet programs in the Delaware Valley, thanks to its team of dedicated, enthusiastic, and highly qualified professionals.

Our three racquet professionals are available for private, semi-private, and group lessons, for members of all ages and abilities. So, if you’re new to tennis or paddle or looking to take your game to the next level, contact Mark, Vlatko or Ann.
