Rudy Lewis

Livingstone “Rudy” Lewis Jr. has been playing tennis for over 30 years.  After playing in several tournaments in the early and mid 90’s, he fell in love with the game, and wanted to go beyond just the recreational aspect of it.  He felt a calling to introduce others to the game of tennis, and wanted to emulate his role model, Mr. James Lewis, who helped thousands in the Birmingham area to play the game at no charge.  Rudy began taking classes in order to acquire as much knowledge as possible of the game of tennis before starting his teaching career.  

Rudy was asked to serve on several committees in the state, southern section, and national USTA organizations.  In 1995, he became a tennis official, and then in 1999, became a teaching pro. Eventually, Rudy became a manager at his own tennis center in 2006.  His biggest recognition came in 2006 when Rudy was inducted into the Alabama Tennis Hall of Fame.  Today he continues to offer tennis programs at discounted prices to juniors in the Birmingham area while managing the George Ward Tennis Center.  Rudy’s and his wife moved to Birmingham from New Orleans in 1987 and have been there ever since.  They have two children.  Their daughter is an attorney and lives in New York, while their son is a chef in Seattle.
