Improve Your Game!

Are you new to the sport of platform tennis or looking to improve your paddle game, then sign up for lessons with Matt Lemery, the head paddle professional at Hinsdale Paddle Club (HPC).

Lemery is very familar to platform tennis having competed in National tournaments for 11 years, winning the 2008 St. Louis Open, finishing runner-up at the 2010 Husband Wife Nationals, and was Nationally ranked as high as #42. He still competes in league play and plays on the HPC Series 2 team.

Lemery was born and raised in Menominee, MI (border of Wisconsin). He graduated from Ferris State University in 2003 with a B.S. in Marketing and became a USTA-certified teaching professional through the Professional Tennis Management Program. After two years of teaching tennis as the Junior Director at the South Barrington Club, Lemery was offered the Head Pro position at Westmoreland Country Club. This is where his love of paddle started.  Four years later, he became the Head Paddle Pro at Sunset Ridge Country Club (winter season) and the Director of Tennis at Ivanhoe Country Club (summer season).

In 2013 he took over as Director of Racquet Sports at Butterfield Country Club and helped create their first paddle program.  After five years at Butterfield, Lemery did a complete 360 and took a job as a recruiter at Hunt Club. Unfortunately, he was furloughed during COVID. A Ferris friend contacted him about joining him at his company Essential Tennis.  Here he focused on video coaching.
