Director of Tennis
Paul Robin grew up in Sydney, Australia, and began playing tennis at the age of nine. As a junior player, he had the wonderful opportunity to be coached by Aussie tennis legends such as John Newcombe, Tony Roche, and Ken Rosewall. These great players made a lifelong impression on Paul.
Paul moved to the United States to attend college on a tennis scholarship at the College of Coastal Georgia. He then attended Auburn University Montgomery where he also played on the tennis team. He received his BS degree in Finance from AUM and served as Assistant Coach for the Men’s and Women’s tennis teams. During his time in Montgomery, he also worked as Assistant Tennis Professional in Montgomery at Lagoon Park, O’Connor Tennis Center, and Montgomery Country Club.
Paul comes to Gadsden Country Club from Huntsville Tennis Center where he has been Head Tennis Professional for the last 11 years. Prior to that he served for 10 years as Head Tennis Professional at Huntsville Athletic Club. Paul has always had a great passion for teaching tennis and his clientele has included players of all ages and levels.
Paul has held Elite Professional status with the USPTA for 24 years, Master
Racquet Technician (MRT) certification with the United States Racquet Stringers Association (USRSA) for 15 years and is a lifetime member of the USTA.
His coaching has taken adult NTRP teams to the state, sectional and national level. Success has also come in training juniors from the local level all the way to the national and international levels.
Paul and his wife Tristenne (“Tree”) have two teenage boys, Luke, and Charlie. As apples do not fall far from Paul and Tree, both sons play high level tennis and have represented our great state of Alabama and the Southeast region at Southern and National level tournaments. Charlie has represented the USA at the Junior Orange Bowl International Tennis Championship in Miami.
Paul is so excited to become a part of the team at the Gadsden Country Club. He looks forward to meeting the members and ensuring the best possible tennis experience for all!
