Meet Our Coaches

Tim Driscoll: Director of Tennis

Tim began playing tennis at the age of 10 with his father and immediately loved the game. By the age of 17 he was ranked #3 in Tennessee and 21st in the south. Attending college at Virginia Intermont College on a full scholarship, Tim was awarded the NAIA Division VII Player of the Year in his senior year and reached the semi finals of the National Doubles Collegiate Tournament. Immediately after graduating from college with a BS in Sports Management, he was certified by the USPTR. After teaching at the Bristol Racquet and Fitness Club, he became the head teaching pro at Bristol Country Club. After moving to Greenville, Tim became the head tennis pro at the Thornblade Club. After six years, Tim came to Greenville Rec to build a tennis program and has developed a great junior program with over 800 kids participating in the program and USTA sanctioned tournaments. With over sixteen years of experience as a full time tennis professional with both USPTA and USPTR certification, Tim feels blessed to be able to do what he does each day.

Christine Bush
eastside-tennisopp“Start where you are. Use what you have.  Do what you can.”-Arthur AsheThis quote summarizes Christine’s philosophy of the developmental game of tennis for her students, as well as her personal tennis career. She began playing tennis at the age of 16, after making her high school (Dorman High School) team. She fell in love with the game after one high school season, and began lessons and junior tournaments. Christine earned full scholarship through athletics/academics to attend Spartanburg Methodist College where she played both collegiate tennis and soccer for the College. Christine played the #1 seed in singles and doubles for two seasons with the Pioneers, earning MVP honors and defeating a Bolleteri student in singles match while at SMC, under Coach Jim Greene. Christine continued her tennis career by earning full athletic/academic scholarship to Columbia College. While at Columbia College Christine played numbers 1-3 in singles and #1-2 in doubles. In her two seasons at Columbia College under Coach James Morrison, she maintained a winning singles record, named most developed player and captained tennis team.  Christine also interned at Northwoods Golf Club while at Columbia College, aside from tennis/academic activities. She continued her education earning her Master of Arts plus 30 hours degree from Converse College in Special/Elementary Education.

Christine resumed her tennis career by completing her PTR certification and accepting the Varsity Head Coach of the Boys Tennis Program (in addition to full-time position as Special Educator serving students with Learning Disabilities) at Airport High School in West Columbia, SC. She organized and managed a golf tournament fundraiser within two months of accepting the Head Coach position. Through local player and community support Christine established a budget to fund her tennis program, and vision; to develop and support successful student-athletes through the game of tennis. In her first season at AHS she negotiated and held the program’s home matches at a community tennis complex, (due to condition of High School’s tennis facility), established a USTA No-Cut team and finished third in region. In her second year as Head Coach she researched and wrote a USTA Facilities Assistance Grant and joined the SC After School Alliance, in order to build more after school tennis programs in West Columbia, SC at the Airport High School Tennis Facility. She also took her team to play against non-region defending state champions, Dorman High School and coached her number one player at the 2012 Boys Singles SCHSL singles tournament.

Christine developed and ran junior/adult camps/clinics at the Eastside YMCA in the Summer and Fall of 2012, through the Greenville County Recreation District Tennis Program. She is currently a full-time Resource Teacher at Mauldin High School and an Associate Pro at the Pavilion. Her career goal is to help players of all levels develop and succeed, while growing the game of her strongest passion; tennis.
