CORAL SPRINGS, FL – With her fierce backhand and net game, a tennis pro at Coral Springs Tennis Center has long been one of the best players in the world in the 35 age and older category.
Heather Nobler has been ranked #2 in the United States Tennis Association and #8 in the International Tennis Federation.
Now, the 36-year-old mother of two will be a part of the United States team in the 35 age and older category and serve as its captain at a tournament in Umag, Croatia sometime next year. The tournament was supposed to be in September but got canceled due to the pandemic.
“I wasn’t expecting to be chosen as captain but have been hoping for the opportunity the last couple of years,” Nobler said. “I’m proud and honored to represent the USA and lead our team of great players. I’ve always been appreciative and grateful that I’m still able to compete at a pretty high level and have these experiences.”
Tennis has been a part of Nobler’s life since she was a child. The sport has also given her a chance to give back to her community.
