Written by USPTA tennis pro James Markert of Louisville, Kentucky and produced by Gill Holland, also of Louisville, and Jay Thames of 77 Films, “2nd Serve” is a “snobs vs. slobs” film that is part “Caddyshack” part “Dodgeball” part “Wimbledon” and all heart. The movie follows tennis pro Owen Match (Hopkins) who gets fired from his cushy country club gig at the affluent Fountain Club and is forced to take a job at the gritty public courts of the Derby City Rec Center. Along with his new co-workers, a ragtag group of tennis goofs, their boss, the strong-willed single mother club manager Sherry (Gilmore) and her son Jake (Monaghan), a goth teenager with a tennis crush, Owen might just have one last shot at redemption, for him and everyone else.

As Owen begins to win over his colleagues, mend his broken relationships, and help Jake improve his serve, he develops a romantic connection with Sherry — despite her insistence that she doesn’t date tennis pros. Just when things start to look up, Owen’s former boss and tennis nemesis Charles (Dash Mihok) challenge the Derby Club to a showdown at the annual Combo Cup tennis tournament. As he leads his team of oddballs, Owen learns the most valuable lesson of all – whether you are on the court or off – everyone deserves a “second serve.”

“There really aren’t many movies that have tennis as a main theme and that alone makes ’2nd Serve’ so unique,” said Holland. “’2nd Serve’ has a feel of a being tennis version of ‘Caddyshack,’ and you can’t help but smile and laugh throughout the movie.”

“’2nd Serve’ is a movie with a huge heart and, it’s a crowd pleaser,” said Thames. “It’s a must-see for anyone who has played tennis, whether at a private club or a public facility or taught tennis in any regard, or simply anyone who loves an endearing feel-good movie.”

“2nd Serve” also stars Kevin Sussman (Big Bang Theory, Burn After Reading, Hitch), Guillermo Diaz (Weeds, The Terminal, Half Baked), Sam McMurray (Raising Arizona, Christmas Vacation, LA Story) and Mihok (Silver Linings Playbook, The Day After Tomorrow, I Am Legend).

The movie premiered at the Woodstock Film Festival in New York and the AMFM Film Festival in Palm Springs. It was filmed in Louisville, primarily at the Louisville Boat Club and the Jewish Community Center.
