Bio – Tennis Coordinator – Lynn Rau – LRau@mcfetridgesportscenter.net
Prior to Lynn being named the Tennis Coordinator she was a Tennis Instructor, at McFetridge, for 7 years, with one year as Assistant Manager. She was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, the youngest of eight children. Lynn came to Chicago to work after graduating from college. Her senior year of high school I was the 4A district doubles state champion. I played Division I tennis for Tulsa University and St. Louis University. Tennis was always he passion as a child. Lynn’s father introduced the game to her at age 5. After dinner, we would walk to the neighborhood park and hit balls. He never said, “No”, when I asked to play. In 2007, Lynn received her Professional Tennis Registry certification as an Instructor. In 2008, she volunteered as an Instructor for 9 months until a position opened up. In 2009 she was officially hired at McFetridge.
McFetridge has become part of my family and my community. I truly love teaching and getting to know all the patrons at this facility. I run into them at the store, at school functions, at church, and sometimes just walking down the street. In my opinion, “McFetridge Makes Friends”.
