Ricky Harrel

Coach Ricky Harrell started playing tennis when he was 5, training primarily at the Ida Lee Park Tennis Center and as well as Sea Colony in Bethany Beach, DE. As a junior, Ricky competed in tournament as well as team tennis programs locally and statewide. While Ricky played many sports, including golf, soccer, basketball, and tennis, it was tennis that he dedicated his high
school career to. He started on the varsity tennis team at Heritage High School all four years and was captain both his junior and senior years. During his time as team captain, Ricky spent many hours mentoring and coaching the other players on his team. It was during this time that he developed his love for coaching. Throughout the following years, Ricky attended James Madison
University, became a licensed pilot, and began his tennis coaching career. Ricky spent time coaching at River Creek Country Club as well as the Ida Lee Park Tennis Center, where he also
acted as a program administrator. In the Fall of 2021, Ricky’s ever-growing passion for coaching led him to make the decision to begin his full-time coaching career.

Ricky specializes in coaching junior junior tennis and strives to create an environment that is fun and inviting for kids of all ages. He believes that it’s equally important to develop both a strong foundation of skills and to impart a love for the game that will last a lifetime.

Ricky is extremely excited to bring his coaching expertise and love for the game to McLean Racquet and Health Club.
