Meet The Team

Lexington Tennis Club is led by an experienced team of Tennis Professionals

The Management Team

LTC’s Management Team is composed of three certified Tennis Professionals who were involved in the founding of the club. They bring not only tennis knowledge but also a unique range of skills from training in other disciplines. Each of these managers splits their time at LTC between on-court tennis instruction and managing the club off-court.

Bill Busiek

Bill grew up in the Dorchester section of Boston and was the first student from Sportsmen's Tennis Club to earn a full athletic scholarship for tennis (University of Tennessee). During college summers, Bill taught at the Sportsmen’s location on Blue Hill Avenue.

After graduating college, Bill became the Head Pro at the Old Colony Club in Andover, where he taught for 5 years. He then attended Babson College full-time to earn an MBA, which opened the door to a career in high tech sales (artificial intelligence). Bill then taught tennis at the Mount Auburn Club in Watertown for 6 years, where he played on championship-winning men’s teams.

Bill still competes in tennis at a national level in the age bracket divisions. Understanding the limitations of age and health through his own experience as a life-long player, he approaches the game with a learned and healthy perspective.

Dean Zeldich

Dean grew up playing tennis in Israel, where he was a top junior player before moving to Newton, MA in 2010. He then trained at the New England Academy of Tennis until going to Boston University for college. Dean has been a teaching pro at Longwood Cricket Club since 2013, coaching some of the best junior players who compete at the New England sectional and national level. Dean coaches all ages and skill levels; his oldest student is 91 years old! His teaching philosophy is centered around maximizing stroke consistency by using the legs and hips to push off the ground and extend through motions.

Dean is still an active player and student of the game. He has been a member of the Boston Pro League and actively trains for competitive play. Dean is finishing up medical school at Boston University and is applying to be a neurologist. In his free time, catch him windsurfing on the cape or backcountry skiing in Vermont, depending on the season.
