Total Tennis closing, everything on sale
By Lisa Brody
After 12 years in Bloomfield Township, Total Tennis is closing its doors as owner and local tennis coach Phillip Woods is dealing with health issues.
Total Tennis is located at 2519 W. Maple Road at Cranbrook, and is a full service tennis store, offering tennis racquets, expert racquet stringing, clothing and accessories. A closing sale began Wednesday, February 8, with racquets and shoes 25 percent off, and all clothes 65 percent off, until everything is gone, said Rachael A-Woods, Phillips wife, noting they will honor outstanding gift certificates.
“We appreciate the community support for the last 12 years,” she said.
Phillip Woods has been the tennis coach for the city of Southfield and has run the tennis program for southwest Detroit and Clark Park in Detroit for many years, Rachel said, as well as coaching tennis at Beverly Hills Racquet Club and the junior varsity tennis team at Groves High School. Many of his former private tennis students went on to achieve tennis scholarships to college, Rachael said.
“Phillip also taught Wheelchair Tennis for USTA, and that truly shows how he wanted to make the game inclusive for everyone,” Rachael added.
