Made in the Shade is happy to introduce Rod Badakhsh as the proud owner of Made in the Shade Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Rod comes to Made in the Shade after a very successful 20+ year career as a USPTR certified tennis professional. While living in Wilmington, North Carolina, he served as Tennis Director at Echo Farms Country Club. His accomplishments include: 2008 North Carolina Tennis Pro of the Year, 3-time Greater Wilmington Tennis Association Pro of the Year, 2-time USTA Men’s League State Champion, Division 1 college athlete at Rutgers University, and a lead instructor at Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy.

In pursuit of owning his own Made in the Shade business, Rod, his wife Diane, and children Gabby and Sadri, moved to Savannah Georgia where he will use his energy, enthusiasm, and experience to consult with homeowners in helping them make the perfect selections for their window fashion needs. Welcome to the Made in the Shade family, Rod!
