OUR FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT
A once homeless Enock Godi who rose from the hustle and vulnerability of a young boy in the Capital of Ghana is our proud Founder and President. From age 11 Enock found hope and solace in hitting tennis balls and later became a ball boy as a means to make ends meet and to survive the hustle that has made other young boys victims of all kinds of social vices. He was always found on the tennis court practicing and dreaming of a future in tennis. Enock Godi, the founder and President of the Hope Tennis Foundation is a product of ITF training centre in South Africa, where he received a scholarship to the Mount San Jacinto College in California. He was part of the winning team in the Southern California Championship in the United States of America. Our Founder and President played for the Golden Racquet of Ghana in the Davis Cup in Tunisia in 2012. After featuring for the National team he went into professional tennis coaching plus skill development aimed at discovering rising future stars and introducing the game of tennis to virgin areas in Ghana in an attempt to give back to the game in ways that eluded him when he was young at the game. He is currently a PTR Performance Professional and a certified USPTR 10U, 11 – 17 Professional at the Atlanta Athletic Club in Johns Creek, Georgia, USA. He will be leading a team of local ITF level 1 and 2 Coaches in the high performance tennis clinic in Ghana from September 5th to 8th, 2018.
