About Helle Sparre

“Helle (it’s pronounced HELL-uh) tells her story better than anyone else can and I want to introduce you to the woman who’s going to help you improve your doubles tennis game by this afternoon. Unlike many tennis pros who enjoyed success on the tour, she’s been able to translate her skills to hundreds and hundreds of students who have improved their game and their appreciation of the sport of tennis.”
