Fernandez, who won 17 Grand Slam doubles titles during her career, is now available to spend a full or half day at tennis clubs around the country.
A half-day session kicks off with the opportunity to meet, greet and take a commemorative photo with Gigi, followed by a two hour adult clinic. The clinics will focus on doubles, including volley and overhead technique as well as doubles serve and return strategies. Gigi will then spend time sharing stories about life on the WTA Tour and answering questions while everyone relaxes over a bite to eat.
A full day session includes all of components of the half-day session as well as the opportunity for the junior members of the club to meet and learn from Gigi. After lunch, Gigi will spend a little time getting to know and taking pictures with the players followed by a junior clinic, which will also focus on the lost art of doubles and the all-court game.

Fernandez says, “tennis really is the sport of a lifetime but doubles strategy and technique seems to be
the lost art of the sport. To be a successful doubles player, you need teamwork, communication, timing and sportsmanship skills.” The Olympic gold medalist continued, “tennis has brought so much to my life and that’s why I am so happy to bring the art of doubles play to adults and children across the U.S.”
