Letter from Dennis Malick
Hello Coaches Traveling on Spring Break 2017:
Midway through the 17 years that Tennisaction Hilton Head Island ran Spring Break Tennis, I initiated a conversation with Dennis Van der Meer about getting involved with the event. As a former promotions/advertising director for Van der Meer Tennis and the TennisUniversity, I knew it would be a very good fit for the TU and the Professional Tennis Registry. PTR was an early sponsor with promotions for coaches and players and by hosting SBT player exhibitions.
PTR already has a solid corps of college coaches among its membership and has an established year-round staff to conduct a Spring Break event. It will
come on the heels of its annual International Symposium and PTR Championships held in mid-February. Dan Santorum and Julie Jilly each have a long
history with college tennis and an even longer time working with and for college tennis and the sport in general.
I am serving as a consultant to Spring TennisFest, hoping to lend my experience in dealing with and enjoying working with hundreds of coaches who took our event to the incredible numbers we achieved. Together, we aim to help restore that. If you have any questions about Spring TennisFest, well, you can find me at the same place as years ago – www.springtennisfest.com.
Good luck on your cooooool summer and startup for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017. I hope to see you at PTR Spring TennisFest.
