In this episode:
On the 122nd episode of the GreatBase Tennis podcast, Steve Smith had a conversation with Julian Krinsky and his wife, Tina.
Starting in the late 70’s, Julian founded the Julian Krinsky School of Tennis (JKST) in Philadelphia. JKST evolved into Julian Krinsky Camps and Programs (JKCP); which became one of the largest and most diversified summer camps in the US. Julian’s tennis business runs on year round basis and is conducted on college campuses as well as two indoor clubs he owns.
Julian grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa and excelled in the classroom and the courts. He won medals at the Maccabiah Games in tennis representing South African in 1969 and medals representing the United States in squash in 1981. In tennis, he traveled the international circuit and played both Wimbledon and the French Open.
According to Steve, “Julian is a world-class pied piper and throughout his career hit tons of home runs in the kid business. He should be at the top of the list for anyone seeking advice on owning and operating any type of camp.”
