by Rich Neher


Chris Ojakian and his fiance (and VP in Chris Ojakian Tennis) Marie were on hand June 17 for a ribbon cutting at the historic Langham Huntington hotel in Pasadena, to mark the Grand Opening of their newest facility here. The company has managed and operated some of the country’s finest tennis clubs and sports facilities, including Farm Neck Golf Club (Marthas Vineyard, Ma.), East Chop Racquet Club (Marthas Vineyard, Ma), The Ritz Carlton Hotel, and facilities from Hollywood, Bel Air, Brentwood, Studio City, Culver City, the International Tennis Centre Las Vegas, and the internationally renowned Club Med Resorts to train it’s staff globally.

2011 USPTA California Pro of the Year Chris Ojakian is one of the many remarkable pillars of Southern California tennis. His web site describes him as "...a celebrity tennis pro and the president of Ojakian Tennis. Ojakian has been a member of the United States Professional Tennis Association since 1990 and was the 2010 District Pro of the Year in Southern California. He is the youngest person to receive a USPTA 1 rating in New England. While receiving a marketing degree from the University of North Carolina, Ojakian was ranked 14 nationally in doubles." But there is much more to this tennis professional who was recently voted "America's Hottest Tennis Pro" by Tennis Channel fans.

Chris is also known as a National Speaker for Cardio Tennis, traveling around the world introducing this heart-pumping fitness class to several facilities and other tennis pros. He has trained celebrities such as Diane Sawyer, Alan Thicke, Dustin Hoffman, Harrison Ford, Spike Lee, Helen Hunt and many others. His Cardio Tennis technique has been featured in TV shows like The Biggest Loser, Chelsea Lately on E! Entertainment, The Tennis Channel, FOX and Telemundo, among many others.

Another feather in Chris Ojakian's cap is the organization and implemention of one of the fastest- growing celebrity tennis charity events in Southern California. Called “Serve it up to End MS,” the event benefits the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Celebrities from movies, television, music join some of the biggest names in tennis every year to participate in this event. Celebrities who participate include Tracy Austin, Matthew Perry, Gavin Rossdale, Michael Chang, The Bryan Brothers, Alan Thicke, Brody Jenner, and many others.

Chris Ojakian Tennis will be offering its full range of tennis programming at the 3 beautiful Langham Huntington courts, including adult and junior tennis programs and events, camps, drop-ins and, of course, Cardio Tennis.
