Rob Laue

Coach Rob Laue

Rob Laue is the club manager at the Crystal Lake Racket Club.  When Rob learned to play tennis as a freshman at Larkin High School, it was simply to hang out in the spring with his friends who played for the school team. Incredibly, many years later that decision has proven to be life- and career-altering. After studying Leisure Studies with a concentration in Sport Management at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Rob eventually got back on the tennis track. Stints at Lincolnshire, Bannockburn and Heritage tennis clubs were next before his dream job in Crystal Lake came calling and Rob still cannot believe his good fortune. Rob manages from the viewpoint that there is nothing more important to a club than its members and patrons.
