    Bryce Cunningham, Director of Tennis

    A native of Australia, Director of Tennis Bryce Cunningham brings to Omni La Costa Resort & Spa international experience as a player, coach and director.

    Bryce's love for tennis started early in his youth.  As a junior, he trained at both the Chris Evert and Bollettieri Academies, and went on to play internationally on the ITF circuit.  Following his days as a tour player, Bryce went on to earn his USPTA Elite Professional certification as well as certification as a personal trainer.  While still in Australia, he served as Head Tennis Professional at Tiebreak Tennis Academy, directing the adult and junior programs as well as summer camps.  In 2008, Bryce joined the team at Cliff Drysdale Tennis, and quickly moved up the ranks to Program Director and Camp Director at the award-winning tennis center at The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami, before taking over the Bluewater Bay Tennis Center as Director.  Under Cunningham's leadership, the facility has been voted "Best Tennis Center" in NW Florida by Emerald Coast Magazine.
