Playing on the road with Kenny Rogers. We played tennis during the day and Kenny sang at night. He did 250 shows a year, and I traveled with him for 8 years. He had a very nice jet.

I worked on a Nike commercial with John McEnroe in Las Angeles. The next day he was quoted in the LA Times: “I don’t know who that guy was, but it was like hitting against a brick wall.”

Playing doubles in Georgia with Andre Agassi, Steffi Graf, and my friend Roger Peiken. I watched Andre play in Las Vegas at age 5. His father worked as a maître d'hôtel at my hotel.

I understand now why the pros call him Doug Dean Tennis Machine. Doug has the best tennis clinics, tennis camps, and private lessons in the Hamptons. Anytime I go to the Hamptons I make sure I get to hit balls with Doug Dean at least a few times. He also has great tennis camps and tennis clinics for groups in the Hamptons, and his private tennis lessons are really rewarding. Great tennis instructor!

The HUGE plus for this hotel is the visiting tennis pro Doug Dean. He is a fabulous pro and a really nice guy. He gave our children lessons all week and they were quite impressed with his stories of his past and present connections within the tennis and entertainment community. He made their trip very special. He even gave us some tips on hot spots to eat, drink and tour. There are tennis specials on the website. It was our first trip to the Hampton's and we were glad we went and would return to the Westhampton Bath and Tennis Hotel just because of Doug Dean, a wonderful person.

Let me put it like this. What's the biggest mistake a tennis player can make in his lifetime? ......... Missing an opportunity to play tennis with one of the legendary folk heroes in tennis, Doug Dean. Even if you have to drive 1000 miles out of your way, it will be worth it.
