Although Jeremy got a late start into the tennis world at the age of 14, it didn’t take long for his love of the sport to grow. Born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Jeremy attended Marion High School and graduated in 2014. Through his high school years, he attended lessons and clinics at Westfield Tennis Club, which is now Smithfield Tennis and Pickleball Center. He then attended Wartburg College and got his Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering Science. Jeremy played four years of varsity tennis at Wartburg and graduated in 2018.
After college, he was a teaching professional at Elmcrest Country Club where he taught for five years. During that time, Jeremy’s passion and love for the sport only grew stronger, as he went on to become a United States Professional Tennis Association certified professional.
As the first Head Professional at Smithfield Tennis & Pickleball Center, Jeremy is excited to introduce his students to the premiere, brand-new, state-of-the-art tennis & pickleball facility in Iowa. Jeremy aims to grow the programs and provide an energetic and inclusive environment for players of all skill levels. In his role as Head Professional, Jeremy will oversee the direction of all tennis and pickleball private and group lessons. He is excited to create a robust, vibrant, welcoming and fun place for our members to learn and improve their games. He can’t wait to begin to forge long-lasting positive relationships with all of you!
