Howard Chodak is originally from Long Island, NY, where he began playing tennis at an early age. He began teaching in 1979 and eventually moved to NJ where he met Lisa, his wife of 36 years. He spent 15 years working at Indian Spring Country Club in Boynton Beach, FL, the last eight as the Director of Tennis. Since then, he has worked at several facilities in the Boca/Delray area. He is a USPTA Master Professional who has served as both a USPTA tester and a Vice-President on the USPTA Florida Board. He is the author of the critically acclaimed book The Seven Deadly Sins of Doubles, a primer on recreational doubles play. From 2014–2017 he was the Director of Tennis Development for Special Olympics Florida, where he transformed competitions throughout the state by introducing red, orange, and green balls to allow many more athletes the opportunity to compete. He is cautious about making technical changes to player’s games that may be difficult to incorporate, choosing instead to focus on making better strategic choices. He is very excited to be here at Century Village and is looking forward to helping everyone get the most enjoyment from their tennis as possible.
