Swetka's Tennis Shop was first opened for business in 1969 by Alex and Sally Swetka. Both avid tennis players, Alex and Sally saw the need for a retail tennis store amid the tennis boom fo the late 60's and early 70's. Alex continued to play tennis well into his 90's, winning over 50 national titles including the Grand Slam in the 90's age group in 2007. He won the singles titles at the four major national tournaments played on clay, grass, hard court and indoor surfaces. Swetka's Tennis Shop continues to be a family owned and operated business as son John, also an accomplished player, has been running the business for the last 20 years. In 2005 Swetka's Tennis Shop was named one of the Top 10 Tennis Shops in the country by RSI and then in 2006 took the top spot as the #1 Tennis Shop in the nation. Swetka's Tennis Shop has a very knowledgeable staff with over 100 years of combined retail tennis experience.
