Overview

Born and raised in Baltimore, Steve Krulevitz is a local tennis legend. As a Maryland Junior, Krulevitz not only captured four Maryland Scholastic Association singles titles at his alma mater, Park School, but was ranked seventh in the nation and elected to the U.S. Junior Davis Cup team. As an All-American at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), Krulevitz received a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. After graduating in 1974, Krulevitz joined the pro tour where, for over a decade, he competed against some of the greatest tennis players of all time, including Arthur Ashe, John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, Rod Laver, Björn Borg, Ilie Nastase, Stan Smith, and Ivan Lendl. After retiring from the Professional Grand Prix tennis circuit in 1984, Krulevitz started The Steve Krulevitz Tennis Program. In 1993, Krulevitz was inducted into the USTA Mid-Atlantic Tennis Hall of Fame and in 2015 he was named United States Professional Tennis Association Mid-Atlantic High School Coach of the Year. Thousands of juniors and hundreds of adults along the East Coast have learned and honed their tennis game under the tutelage of Steve “Lightning” Krulevitz.
