Blake Wilcox

 

Meet Blake Wilcox, Director of Tennis

“Tennis has been my life,” says Director of Tennis Blake Wilcox. But now, inspired by the fun-seeking spirit of Andalusia residents, Blake is juggling multiple sports. He says, “The people here are very active, social and eager to try anything.” Blake has brought pickleball and bocce ball to Andalusia. Neighbors gather for weekly games, plus wine and snacks from Tapas Restaurant. Blake says, “We play hard, but when the game is over it’s time for fun. Our folks love to mix and mingle.” A one-time nationally ranked tournament tennis pro, Blake graduated from Utah State and was invited to the desert by David Kramer, son of legend Jack Kramer. For 23 years Blake was Director of Tennis at Palm Valley Country Club. He, wife Linda, and daughter Austin love the easygoing atmosphere at Andalusia. “People are not single-minded,” he says. “Golfers play tennis, and tennis players golf.” Blake adds, “For me, coming to work is like going on vacation.” Let the games begin!
