I sincerely hope that the deletion of Bryn Bryant's bad name from the Hell's Kitchen Tennis Academy website means that the man no longer has anything to do with the organization, but I encourage consumers who patronize it, and are having issues, to inquire and see for themselves.  For reasons set forth below, I encourage them to inquire even if they are not having issues with the organization.  Bryn's image has not been removed entirely from the company's social media accounts.

Bryn Bryant, or Brynley Bryant, has a long and sordid history of taking people's money and not delivering.  He changes business names the way some people change clothes. One need only Google his name to find his many business guises and his seemingly compensated troop of Internet review shills (or maybe it's just him on the rare productive day) who get onto consumer review websites and attempt to counter all of the complaints. I really don't need to add anything more here, the information is readily available.  His m.o., aside from the taking of payment and not delivering what people have given him payment for, looks to involve a conscious effort to stay one step ahead of the District Attorney's office.  He doesn't seem to be above abusing charitable organization status. And a lawsuit won't hurt him; he is judgment proof, trust me.  Bryn has done it all: pedicab driving, "yacht brokering," and more recently, tennis.  He's probably attempted to teach people golf, too. Showing up at an employer for a 9 to 5, however, likely has never been part of his life, and the only reason he's not a full time grifter (not that he hasn't tried) is that he lacks the requisite smarts and planning ability. 

Ordinarily, I'd feel sorry for someone like Bryn.  He's approaching 40 with a bit of a gut, low muscle tone and nothing to show for it but a lengthy string of personal failures and angry consumers. After all, it's a bit scary when you look into the future of a person like him: the increasing desperation, the persistent lack of money, the stink of ramen and extra value meals, the declined credit cards, and the foreclosing of one opportunity after another as the army of people you've done wrong swells and the day of reckoning draws nearer. Imagine the energy involved in taking down one website and business entity after another, while erecting new ones, only to have to make them disappear, too, because the public has -- predictably -- once again come for you. His GoDaddy bill must be enormous. But then I pause, and I don't feel bad for Bryn.  I don't feel bad because I note that others have pointed out his bullying and intimidating demeanor, which, I suspect, is symptomatic of what presents in every way as a significant substance abuse problem.  I can add that there is reason to believe he has been arrested at least once for actions capable of being prosecuted as a felony, and there are people who have been witness to his capacity for physical violence.  It's one thing to be concerned about one's money, it's quite another to be concerned about the physical safety of one's children or oneself.

Tennis, anyone?

We signed up our son for the tennis with Bryn. He promised us regular classes during the weekday evenings, bubble in the winter, and lessons that were geared to our sons training (he has a number of years of playing skills). After we paid him, we then released what we got...a sham. No shows for the lessons, constant text messages of his running late or last minute cancellations.

There was never a bubble so lessons ceased if it rained or once it became cold. The lessons, when they finally did occur, were horrid. Just having my son hit balls for an hour. No instructions, no direction. Nothing.

It was a complete and utter scam. We eventually stopped going because the fustrations of dealing with this guy wasnt worth the trouble. Warning to all potential students...GOOGLE his name. Bryn Bryant and you'll see what you're getting. One star reviews and a load of bs.
