Jeffrey Feldman from Wellington recently won the Florida Tennis Association State Closed Championships 60s held at the BallenIsles Country Club.
This is the second state championships for Feldman. He previously won the state championships in the 55 division in 2007.
“This state championship was especially satisfying, in that I fell 27 feet through the roof of a warehouse in 2009, broke a lot of bones and was helicoptered to Good Samaritan. I never thought that I would walk again, let alone play competitive tennis or win the state championships,” said Feldman. “In addition to playing a lot of tennis, going to the gym and eating right are very key for anyone of any age who wants to be good at a sport. I did celebrate the win with a couple of slices of pizza.”
Feldman, a longtime Wellington resident, owns JAF and Sunshine Properties, a commercial and industrial real estate investment and development firm in Royal Palm Beach and West Palm Beach. He lives in the VillageWalk community.
