Mike Lipsey took his love of tennis halfway across the world to teach under-privileged children in Liberia. After retiring from the tech industry at the young age of 45, he found his second career in sports. Lipsey is the founder of TGA of Silicon Valley, which teaches children how to play golf and tennis, his two favorite sports. TGA actually stands for “Teach, Grow, Achieve.”
“It doesn’t matter how many miles kids are apart, sports can make any kid joyful and happy,” Lipsey says. “Sports transcend countries, oceans and borders, a game like tennis can be enjoyed by all races and all types of people. That’s because sports are a universal language.”
