Jasen Hansen

The spring of 2017 was Jasen's inaugural season at Cincinnati Tennis Club as the General Manager and Tennis Director. Jasen comes to CTC with 20 years of overall experience in the industry as a staff pro or lead tennis director at different locations. During the winter months, Jasen is a contracted and staff pro at Eastern Hills Indoor Tennis Club, where he has been since 1999. Before that he was at Colonial Racquet Club from 1997-1999, and prior to that he was a junior pro at the Beverly Hills Racquet Club in Michigan. Jasen's passion for tennis has grown and taken a different form since he first picked up a racquet over 30 years ago as a competitor. Although he still enjoys playing on occasion, his passion has shifted, and he would tell you that using his knowledge of the sport to teach is both satisfying and rewarding. Jasen is ready and very excited to take Cincinnati Tennis Club, which already has a very successful and well attended program and event guide, and further develop the eager membership to build on the great foundation laid by many great predecessors through the decades. 

Jasen and his wife Jessica have one son together, Parker (3 years old), and Jessica is stepmom to Jasen's two older sons, Alexander (12 years old) and Lucas (11 years old). In his off time, Jasen enjoys spending time with his family. He loves cheering his older sons on during their basketball and baseball games, and his youngest son keeps him on his toes as he develops his little personality.

Born and raised in Cincinnati, Chris first picked up a racquet at the age of four. He played varsity tennis at Walnut Hills High School and went on to become an all-conference player at Oberlin College, graduating in 2008 with a degree in Biology. Since then, the sport has been a near constant companion while moving to and from different cities — from teaching private lessons in Los Angeles and Minneapolis, to training high-level juniors in Southeast China. Chris’s passion and enthusiasm for tennis has only grown, and he never tires of how multi-faceted and truly rewarding the game can become. Before returning to Cincinnati in May 2019, Chris taught for four years at Carolina Country Club in Raleigh, NC. He is very excited to be a part of Cincinnati Tennis Club. Welcome, Chris!
