1982 Best Tennis Pro

Geoffrey Harvey

Harvey is the head teaching professional at one of the city’s most exclusive clubs, the Badminton and Tennis Club, in the Fenway. A native Aussie, he’s the man racquet aficionados like the Globe’s Bud Collins and PBS’s Kim Prince turn to for friendly advice when their backhands get rusty. “Tennis is a good form of stress management,” offers Harvey. “I look at the individual and bring him into the learning problem. It involves his whole being. The actual physical movements are the simplest part.”
