Coach Randall

Randall Bedwell began playing tennis on the public courts of Paris, Tennessee and rose to become a top-ranked junior player in the state. He later played varsity tennis for Lambuth University, where he was a two-time all-conference player. He was first certified as a USPTA teaching pro in 1980, and served as municipal pro for two cities: Paris, Tennessee and Oxford, Mississippi, where he led the development of hundreds of junior players for nearly a decade. He began his college consulting career as a tennis pro in 1990, placing top-ranked junior players at top colleges across the country.  Over the last thirty years, “Coach Randall” has been an important influence on the lives of his students.  He still teaches tennis as a part-time pro at Maryland Farms YMCA in Brentwood, TN.
