Sarah Candeloro - Player and Coach

High school tennis. Junior Team Tennis. College Tennis. Tournament Tennis.  As a player. As a coach.


Wherever she is, and in whatever role she’s playing, Sarah Candeloro leaves her mark.


Each year, Candeloro seems to become a more and more recognizable figure in the tennis community. A former standout at Delaware’s Caesar Rodney High School, she had an incredible college career at the University of Tennissee at Martin, putting together 157 wins and earning first team all-conference honors (she also managed a 3.95 grade point average, by the way).


These days, you can find Candeloro coaching the next wave of standouts. She led this year’s Delaware Nightmare Junior Team Tennis (JTT) team to a second-place finish at JTT Section Championships.


Those championships were only a few short weeks after she competed herself in the Middle States Open, one of the highest-level tournaments in the section.


So what keeps her going, both as a coach and a player?


“I love the game and the competition. ADVERTISEMENT I love the kids,” she said. “It’s really as simple as that.”
