Conrad has now earned his Level 3 MTM Tennis Professional Certification in addition to being PTR certified. He started playing tennis and running track at George W. Wingate High School in Brooklyn, NY, and continued playing while attending Hostos Community College, Bronx, NY. When his hope of earning a scholarship to a four year college did not work out he entered the United States Army.

 

While stationed in Bamburg, Germany in 1979, Conrad got the opportunity to compete on a recreation team playing across Germany on clay. The only benefit he got from playing tennis was the opportunity to travel and meet new people.

 

Conrad's pride and joy is his daughter, Ashley, who was exposed to tennis at the age of three. He explains, "I felt that I could do a better job than the coach she had and save myself some money. I googled information on coaching youth tennis and saw a video with Oscar Wegner. That lead me to his book "TENNIS IN 2 HOURS", and I never looked back."

 

In addition to coaching at 2 locations in the Atlanta area, Conrad also acts as Coach/Captain of USTA youth team tennis for 12U Intermediate at South Fulton Tennis Center. He started in 2016 coaching the Fall team, the 2017 Winter team, The State Qualifier and the 2017 Summer team.

 

Says Conrad, "I chose to do team tennis as a way to showcase MTM. Ashley, my daughter, is my show and tell model. After every team match and tournament, at least two coaches always pull me aside to pick my brain. To keep things short and simple, I refer them to google Oscar Wegner. As of today Ashley's USTA ranking is 19 for the state of Georgia. Because of Ashley's loves for tennis, I am working with her hoping she can use the sport to pay for her college."
