Rachael James - BCT Founder
Her Journey 

Her tennis journey began in Detroit, Michigan at the age of eight when her father took me to public courts with a few tennis balls. She instantly loved the sport. Later, to pursue her passion, her parents moved to south Florida where she trained at some of the best and most well-known tennis academies. Unfortunately, she could not pursue her tennis professionally because of the financial expense. Thus, she was recruited and received a full-athletic scholarship to NC State. Her collegiate journey didn't stop there. She made my way to Waco, TX to play for Baylor University, a team that was top 10 in the nation. Finally, she concluded her collegiate career at UNC-Chapel Hill with a team that held the #2 spot in the nation.


Post college, she taught the sport at several facilities and country clubs around the triangle. She was also given the title of Head Tennis Professional at the Grandover Resort. Now, she wants to give back to the Durham community and tennis. Bull City Tennis is designed to create a boom of opportunities for kids and adults in the inner city to experience one of the most expensive sports.
