Viola Madej

Volunteer Training Coordinator


After she moved to the United States in 1997, Viola has been in the tennis business and community. She started as a teaching pro and moved up to a vice president of an Alpharetta-based tennis management company. In 2014, Viola started working in cyber security where she could utilize her degree in Science in Computer Information System Management and Internet Programming.

Viola believes the skills she has learned on the tennis court help her to deal with everyday challenges. Her personal credo is by Buddha: “If we fail to look after others when they need help, who will look after us?”


Viola met Jim Hamm after one of her GPTA presentations of Cardio Tennis 4 Kids. He approached her and asked if she would be willing to sit down and talk about programs for Special Pops Tennis. She believes tennis is more than just a fun game. Tennis teaches life skills like integrity, hard work and teamwork. She also believes movement is a privilege. A person blessed when they are healthy enough to be able to move.
