Giammalva History

Founder Sammy Giammalva, is a former tennis pro ranked 30 in the world men’s tennis by the age of 18. After attending Rice University and getting married, Sammy worked as tennis director for five years. However, he desired an encouraging atmosphere where friends and family could come together for one common purpose tennis. That’s when Sammy decided to open this racquet club in March 2000, where he and the entire Giammalva staff have provided a fun, social, and active environment ever since.

New owners Victor Piñones, Helga Piñones, and Anand Krishnan are excited to carry on Sammy’s legacy and strive to keep improving every aspect of this great club!
