Vel was the Assistant Pro at Destination Resort Hotel’s Aria Club and Spa Tennis in Vail, Colorado.
Vel Alahan was the head tennis pro at Bachelor Gulch Tennis Center in Avon, Colorado.
Vel said, earning his USPTA certification (in 1998) was one of his greatest accomplishments.
“I was trained by one of the best USPTA pros in the industry, Brian Hauff, who saw my potential and guided me to it – a small achievement to some, but enormous for me.”
Vel also is proud of “being the hitting/training partner for some of the tennis greats in our industry, due to my accuracy and consistency, and helping them achieve their lifetime goals in tennis.
“I want to pass on my enthusiasm for the sport to others,” Vel says. “I enjoy the variety of people that I meet and I truly can help others play better and enhance their tennis experience.
“Aside from (offering) adult activities, I want to help inner-city youth grow physically and emotionally through their contact with tennis.”
