TURNING TENNIS PRO: I was a very young Tennis Pro in the late 1940´s with jobs at the Mountain Ridge Country Club, NJ and the Mayfair Inn, Stanford, FL. I was not satisfied with my income. I was offered a lucrative job with the Gilman Paper Company, New York City, NY that required my moving to Montgomery, AL to promote and sell a packaging machine that filled chemicals into multi-wall kraft bags, manufactured by Gilman. I had a lot of success with this marketing venture and was moved back to the New York office. A career with Gilman looked good with an excellent pension for my old age. BUT, my love for TENNIS changed everything! My brother, Jack convinced Playboy Hotels International that his Great Gorge Ski Area was a great place to build a hotel that they were planning. He suggested I renew my Tennis Life by accepting the Director of Tennis with Playboy. My Tennis Career was back on track - which my book deals with.

Your favorite tennis book may have to step aside for this semi-autobiographical novel. A tennis coach and a writer, John Gruberg has been mentioned on the Tonight Show and in Playboy Magazine. "There are tears in my eyes as I finish this book. Wow, I am really stunned!" ... Roger Kahn, USPTA"What a great, entertaining and FUN read! John Gruberg has nailed this one. Don't miss it!" ... Dick Gould, Director of Tennis, Stanford University "I can relate to this book. Great tale!" ... Peter Smith, Men's Tennis Coach, USC"At last, a great tennis novel!" ... Gary Glassman, Tennis Coach, Stony Brook University"A tennis story that begs to be told." ... Sean Sloane, Past Director of Education, USTA"Tennis Hobo is, perhaps, the best on its subject." ... Alan Hager, Chair Emeritus, Department of English, University of Illinois"Gruberg's Tennis Hobo brings to mind A Handful of Summers by Gordon Forbes." ... Andrew Weldon, Former Conductor, Burlington Northern Railroad. . . . . . . The golden years of Borg, Connors, McEnroe / Evert, Navratilova, King, haunt the background as two California pros investigate off-the-beaten-path money tournaments, hobo trains, and life in the not-so-fast lane; while simultaneously negotiating the joys and sorrows of teaching the game. Tennis Hobo is not about the glamor of the big time, but rather it is the untold story of someone who makes all that possible -- the teaching pro. It is about Stretch and his friend, Hammer; and it is about an inner city kid who becomes their protégé. It is also about disillusionment and life, and a longing for the old days. But there are plenty of laughs, too. John Gruberg delivers the real thing -- club players, public-parkers, hungry young pros, and anxious tennis parents. Fascinating instruction bits and witty insights to the game are a bonus.
