Tennis legend, and 2014 hall of fame inductee, Nick Bollettieri, tells audiences about his life, the importance of following your dreams, and how tennis shaped his world. A long time top tennis coach, Nick Started the NBTA (Now known as IMG) in the late 70’s in Bradenton, Florida and changed the way tennis was taught at the elite junior level.

It Ain’t Easy Baby walks the line between talk show and skit comedy, with entertaining characters joining Nick and Reno on their journey.  A new style of show, this theatrical production will keep audiences laughing as they learn exclusive information on how Nick was able to build a successful program for so many young players.  The lessons Nick has imparted to his students for 2 generations ring true for audiences of all ages as he shares not only his wisdom for tennis, but his wisdom for life.
