Welcome to the Official Brad Minns Website
Meet Brad Minns
At the age of three he lost his hearing when he contracted a deadly fever. Rather than send him to special schools, his parents made sure Brad knew how to read lips and had him fitted with hearing aids.
He began playing sports and found that he had an interest in tennis. He went on to become one of the top junior players in his age division and received a scholarship at the University of Toledo as a walk on.
After college he went on to become the USA’s number one deaf tennis player and won numerous World Deaf Championships.
With over 30 years’ experience as a player and coach, Brad is dedicated to helping you learn, enjoy and become the best player you can become. Whether you are playing for the first time or a seasoned athlete with dreams of playing high school, college or pro tennis, Brads enthusiasm and commitment to excellence will ensure you make the most of your time on the court in order to reach your goals.
