ABOUT US

My name is Al Klieber and I have been involved in racquet sports and racquet service for 50+ years.

Originally from Germany, I started playing competitive Tennis and Table Tennis as a young man, and started my first racquet stringing business in 1977.  While travelling, I met my wife, Rose (a Canadian from Victoria, BC) and was easily persuaded to make Vancouver Island my new home.  In 1989, I became the Head Teaching Pro at the Victoria Racquet Club and shortly thereafter, together with my wife, Rose, and baby daughter Morgan, we opened Courtside Sports, a racquet specialty retail store. While coaching and running a business with my family, I also spent time playing competitive Tennis in many local, provincial and national tournaments. Morgan also developed a love of the sport  and in addition to receiving a tennis scholarship at a US college, she also became an MRT-certified stringer and technician at our business.

We grew Courtside Sports into a well known and respected business but after 32 years, with our daughter and the beautiful Comox Valley beckoning us, we sold the business and handed over the reigns to two of our employees.

We are very excited to be a part of the community here and  are enjoying spending our time getting to know the Comox Valley Tennis Club members and working out at Morgan's gym here in town: Wild and United Athletics.
