Freedoms owner and tennis icon Billie Jean King is coming to the fabulous Green Valley Country Club in Lafayette Hill, PA for the first-ever match between the Freedoms’ own Josh Cohen and former top-ranked ITF junior Jarrett Chirico… and Green Valley Country Club is inviting Freedoms fans to be a part of this historic event!
Cohen, a Philadelphia native, former coach for the University of Pennsylvania and the current Head Pro at Green Valley, made his debut as a Freedoms coach in 2012 following several stints as a World TeamTennis player with the Freedoms and Delaware Smash. As a player, Josh was the winningest player in University Miami history and was a #1 ranked U.S. junior player, finishing his ITF Junior career ranked #19 in the world.
Chirico, Director of Tennis at Green Valley, was the top-ranked American on the ITF Junior Circuit winning two ITF titles and reaching a career-high #15 ranking in 2002. During this period, he was ranked #1 in USTA 14s and 16s singles and 16s and 18s doubles before going on to a successful college career at University of Virginia and St. Joseph’s in Philadelphia.
As junior players, Josh and Jarrett were contemporaries and rivals, vying to be the #1-ranked American in the world. Both Josh and Jarrett played all four junior Grand Slams multiple times and played in many of the same USTA national tournaments… yet they’ve never faced each other one-on-one... until now!
Everything changes on February 24th when this friendly rivalry culminates in a match YEARS in the making! It’ll be Josh vs. Jarrett , Cohen vs. Chirico, Miami and Penn vs. UVA and St. Joe’s in front of family, friends… and Billie Jean King!
