About

At Fletcher Hills Tennis, we have been spreading our love of tennis throughout San Diego County since 2001 by offering tennis classes, camps, and socials to our local tennis community. Our moto is “making life more fun.” We provide a specially-designed curriculum emphasizing the importance of physical activity, stroke development, team-building, and community involvement, to create lifelong tennis players.

Fletcher Hills Tennis was started in 2001 by Nathan Welden as a summer tennis camp with 10 students. As the summer camp began to grow, so did the vision of growing tennis in the eastern region of San Diego County. Nathan expanded his role from coaching high school tennis at West Hills and Grossmont High School and starting teaching classes for the City of La Mesa and Lake Murray Tennis Club.

In 2013, Nathan partnered with his long-time friend and teaching assistant, Stephen Thom. With their combined expertise, they developed a program and curriculum geared to meet the growing needs of local tennis families. Fletcher Hills Tennis now provides instruction to hundreds of summer campers, local Elementary Schools, along with seasonal (Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring) junior and adult programs at Lake Murray Tennis Club. Together, with their staff of trained instructors, they incorporate their love of tennis to players of all ability levels.

Hope to see you out on the courts!
