Our Tennis Pros/Team 1

Abigail Spears

Abigail played 20 Years on the WTA and ITF Circuit as a professional playing both singles and doubles. She partnered with different doubles players that taught teamwork and dedication as well as the mental beast of competing in singles and problem solving.

She has helped coach her doubles partners on the road which has been valuable in transitioning into coaching instead of competing. She has learned from and worked with her fitness coach for almost 20 years. This has given her the experience of working with people of all levels of
experience, ages, and backgrounds.

Abigail has been coaching and developing different levels of players with her very own business in Colorado Springs for the last year and a half.

Sally Huss

A former Wimbledon semi-finalist and National and Wimbledon Junior Champion, Sally Moore Huss has played tennis her whole life. Huss gathered championships and rankings during her younger years. Then through her work in dance therapy, zen and tai chi she created a unique way of teaching and playing tennis. Sally’s tennis improved so much that she went back on the major tour for a brief time, playing her happy go lucky form of tennis. This is how she was introduced to Colorado Springs. The Virginia Slims Tour took her here to play a very memorable match against the #4 player in the world, Wendy Overton, and she won. Sally Huss has a wealth of tennis knowledge that she must share with all athletes.
