Tennisbloc | Our Story


from humble beginnings

Tennisbloc was founded on the idea of creating a positive change and innovative social impact through reducing geographic and financial barriers to the sport of tennis.

"Growing up, I loved tennis—it was my passion. It gave me a place to put my focus, my joy, my sadness, and all of my heart. But one big problem constantly stood out: how to truly get involved. Growing up in a working class family, we could never afford a fancy club, and the few tennis options we had were too far away to really integrate. Having such a supportive family, my parents made it work anyway, driving over an hour and a half 3 times each week to get me on the court. As the years went on, I became a tennis instructor and went on to become a director at a number of small communities. This is where my passion grew even more—I realized I could play a part in breaking this cycle and bringing the greatest sport on earth to children and adults everywhere. As I began this journey, I started mapping out all of the industry problems that formed this giant barrier of entry to tennis and set out on a mission to disrupt every aspect of it. The rest is history. Today, we are carefully implementing technologies that empower organizers and communities everywhere to create meaningful and engaging tennis communities, events and leagues, while also having logistic technologies at their disposal to increase efficiency, retention, management control, and overall player participation."

- Lee Kincheloe, Founder & CEO


We work with a multitude of communities and cities across North Carolina to create positive and meaningful tennis communities directly in the heart of HOA's and city park facilities.

From the moment we wake up, to the last thought before falling asleep, we have one goal: to continually improve the efficiency and infrastructure of the tennis industry. We work constantly to identify industry obstacles; both from a player perspective, as well as a technology pipeline perspective, and stop at nothing to create the perfect solution.
