If Tennis is Your Racquet, The Beach Club is Your Kind of PlaceEva Faircloth - July 14, 2022
The Beach Club Resort and Spa by Spectrum Resorts is a premier vacation spot on Fort Morgan featuring family-friendly, luxury condominiums and cottages, onsite dining, private access to the beach, a full-service spa and salon plus lots of other amenities. Recently, we’ve added one more big reason to visit—a new tennis pro offering lessons and classes!
Joey Carney, Tennis Pro at The Beach Club
The decision to bring Joey Carney to The Beach Club has proven to be exciting for the resort where lighted Rubico clay courts have been part of the landscape for many years. Joey has a resume filled with stellar affiliations and is the former Head Professional for Club Med Resorts as well as Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne Florida. Joey trained at The John Newcombe Tennis Academy and has successfully built tennis programs all over the world.
Joey is a USPTA Elite Professional, Pro-1 Rating Tennis Canada and a USRSA Master Racquet Technician who loves giving lessons to people of all ages and skill levels.
Keeping it fun is key for Joey who truly loves being on the court looking for ways to connect and make memories on and off court. When not on the court, Joey can be found enjoying our white-sand beaches and spending time with his family, including Zoey, his rescue dog. Fun Fact: Joey collects vintage tennis racquets!
