USA Tennis Florida has chosen Mark Taylor of Safety Harbor to be February’s Volunteer of the Month!  In real life Mark is a Pharmacist with Medco Health.  In his tennis life, as a member of the Adult Competitive Council since 2001, he has taken on the role of Adult Ranking Chairman and Schedule and Sanction Chairman with a true professional zeal!

A very special part about working with Mark Taylor is his attitude…just ask anyone who works with him.  The league staff nicknamed him “Mr. GQ,” because along with that friendly smile, usually goes a great matching outfit!

The following are a couple of comments from people who have worked with Mark that say far more than anything we could write here.

I can’t express how much he helps us with both answering ranking question e-mails, as well as being the chair of sanctioning.  He is awesome, and really makes our jobs easier!
Amy Linn, Coordinator of Rankings

He spends about 2 hours every night returning e-mails and checking results. He always does it with a smile and with professionalism. On top of that, he has become our friend.
Andy Gladstone, Director of Competitive Tennis

Anyone who spends 2 hours each night answering emails on behalf of the Association's business definitely deserves this kind of recognition and more!
Donn Davis, District 13, District Director, Member, Volunteer Council

Mark’s tennis playing credentials match his volunteer credentials.  He finished in the top five in Men’s 35 singles in 2002!

When asked why he volunteers, Mark states, “I like to volunteer in tennis in areas that I can be of assistance to make the overall tennis experience more enjoyable for players that participate in both tournament and league formats.  I participate in both and feel that I can bring a perspective unique to players of all skill levels.”

Mark’s hard work and commitment definitely has contributed to making the tennis experience more enjoyable for many players in Florida.  USA Tennis Florida salutes Mark Taylor, USA Tennis volunteer of the month!
