Author Roy Barth Writes of Life Lessons Learned on the Court

What is it like to play at Wimbledon? Or on center court at the US Open, the French Open, and the Australian Open? Or against Rod Laver and Bjorn Borg, two of the greatest to ever play the game? Roy Barth knows.

What do you do after you retire at age 29? Would you trust your next job to a resort still under construction? Roy Barth did. And he grew its tennis program to be the best in the world. In his new book, “Point of Impact,” Barth suggests that tennis lessons are life lessons. He channeled the lessons he learned on the court into tools for managing the challenges he faced off the court.

“Point of Impact” is Barth’s personal story woven though the history of tennis and a series of life lessons. Part One is The Game of Tennis, and Part Two is The Business of Tennis, but the lessons are the same. Tennis enthusiasts — from the casual spectator, to the game’s facilitators, to the professional-level player — will enjoy this narrative and identify with

Roy’s insights, his obstacles, and his commitment to the game. Learn more at roybarth.com.
