The United States Tennis Association has awarded the Berry College Professional Tennis Management program a $10,000 grant to help recruit more students.
The USTA-accredited Professional Tennis Management Program at Berry offers students a straight shot to a professional certification with the United States Professional Tennis Association.
“The money will be used to assist with the marketing expansion for qualified student athletes who wish to pursue a career within the tennis industry,” said Tom Daglis, director of the Professional Tennis Management program and executive director of the Rome Tennis Center at Berry College.
Students who participate in the program have the opportunity to work at the Rome Tennis Center at Berry College to get valuable firsthand experience. Participants learn practices from USPTA-certified professionals, while also making valuable industry connections. Coupled with a degree from Berry College, the program equips graduates to launch winning careers in the tennis industry.
While this program is a natural partner for students whose focus is on exercise science or sports administration, the PTM program can be coupled with any major at Berry College. To learn more information about the program, visit https://www.berry.edu/ptm/.
