STEVE BUCHANAN – Assistant Pro
Steve grew up in western North Carolina in the small town of Spruce Pine that had no tennis courts. After playing high school sports, Steve discovered tennis when he enrolled at Appalachian State University. When he moved to South Carolina to complete a doctoral program at the University of South Carolina and to teach at USC-Union he began playing USTA tournaments. He achieved USTA age division rankings as high a number 2 in South Carolina. He also began playing USTA league tennis and rose to a 5.0 NTRP level. He has been a member of numerous USTA state and sectional teams. In addition to playing tennis, Steve has coached college tennis, taught college tennis courses, served as the tennis board member at a country club, served as summer tennis pro at a country club, and served as volunteer high school coach.
Dr. Buchanan retired from the University of South Carolina and was awarded the title of Distinguished Emeritus Professor. After his retirement he began serving as a volunteer coach at SAC. When Jen Keiner became the Tennis Director/Head Pro she asked Steve to become her Assistant Pro. Steve assists Jen with all the junior tennis programs and clinics, conducts ladies’ clinics, and helps maintain the SAC courts.
Steve’s wife Debbie is an avid tennis player and they have an eight year old grandson, Colton, who is a promising junior player who participates in all the SAC junior tennis programs.
