Meet Our Tennis Director

Jack DeAndrade

Jack has been a tennis professional with Peter Burwash International since 1986. He has directed successful tennis programs at resorts, clubs and camps in Canada, California, Tokyo, Hawaii and the Carolinas.

Most recently Jack served for 7 years as the Tennis Director for The Cliffs, seven private luxury communities in the Carolina mountains. Five of the communities have tennis facilities with 22 total courts. Jack was responsible for providing private instruction and clinics, running social and competitive tennis events and organizing matches and games for players of all ages and abilities. 

Prior to The Cliffs, Jack spent 7 years directing an active tennis program at The Makena Beach & Golf Resort on Maui in Hawaii. The Makena Tennis Club, according to TennisResortsOnline.com was  ranked in the top 50 tennis resorts in the world each year. Under his direction The Makena Tennis Club grew from just 3 members to over 100 members and became the most popular and most enthusiastic place to play tennis on Maui.

After working at PBI sites in Canada and California Jack expressed a desire to travel to Asia and was soon on his way to Tokyo. Although he had planned to work at many PBI sites in Asia he ended up staying in Tokyo for almost 20 years. For over 10 years he was the Director of Tennis for the exclusive Tokyo Lawn Tennis Club. Members at Tokyo Lawn were diplomats, many different nationalities from all over the world and the Imperial Family as well.

While in Japan, Jack soon became recognized for his tennis coaching expertise beyond the club environment. He was very involved in setting up wheelchair tennis programs and working with the disabled, something he has continued to do wherever he is. Jack has coached on the ATP and WTA professional tours. He has coached at Wimbledon, The French Open and at the US Open. Jack’s wheelchair player also competed in the Bejing Para-Olympics and played for the Bronze medal.
