IT ALL STARTED WITH TENNIS – Born and raised in South Africa, by
the age of 19 Julian Krinsky was competing on the international tennis tour, including Wimbledon and the Italian and French
opens. After earning a law degree and becoming a chartered accountant, Julian settled in Philadelphia and began to teach a few tennis students, part time.
That was 1977. Soon dozens of students at a time were sleeping over
in bunk beds and backyard tents for weekend lessons. By the next year, leased indoor courts and rooms were needed to accommodate
the suddenly fast-growing school of tennis. The Julian Krinsky business model had begun to emerge.
Today, the Julian Krinsky group, operated by Julian Krinsky and Adrian
Castelli, comprises several tightly integrated business units that develop and operate camps and programs for children, teens
and adults, provide property management services for sports and recreational facilities; recruit and provide trained instructors,
staff and professional talent for sports academies, clubs and events and consult on most issues related to operating resorts
and camps-including the purchase, staffing, operation, maintenance and sale of those assets.
Dedicated to providing entertaining and worthwhile learning experiences,
Julian Krinsky Camps & Programs currently operates 12 summer camps in three states. The camps offer leading edge programming
in tennis, golf, enrichment, sports, fitness, business, cooking and performing arts.
JKCP recruits tennis professionals and trainee tennis professionals from
30 states and 15 different countries to come to the US and teach our summer programs. Feedback from
said tennis professionals over the last 25 years has taught us that this is not always an easy task and often requires considerable
research, time and resources.
