January 13, 2005 03:00 AM
USA Tennis Florida is proud to announce that Andy McFarland has been promoted to the newly created position of Associate Executive Director. Andy began working for USA Tennis Florida in December of 1994 as the Coordinator of Junior Team Tennis/NJTL.  In 2002, Andy became the Director of Community Tennis, which encompasses all recreational and community tennis programs and opportunities USA Tennis Florida offers as well as grant and scholarship opportunities for tennis programs, communities and individuals.  A large part of this position is overseeing and managing a team of Community Tennis staff that promotes and grows community tennis programs and are sprinkled geographically around the Section and that has grown to 8 full time staff and 4 community consultants as of 2004. He will continue his work in Community Tennis and will have additional areas of responsibility with finance and the overall operations of the section.

"I am proud to announce this promotion for Andy to be our Associate Executive Director. His leadership and growth over the last 10 years with our association has been outstanding and I know he will continue to make an impact on tennis in our section,” commented Doug Booth, Executive Director.

Andy graduated from the University of Florida in 1993 with a BS in Exercise and Sport Science/Sport Administration and has taught and directed many UF sponsored tennis camps.  While at UF, Andy interned with the USTA Player Development office in south Florida and became teaching certified with the PTR. At the conclusion of the internship, Andy worked with the “then” Rolex Orange Bowl International Championships.  Immediately following the Orange Bowl position, Andy was hired by USA Tennis Florida in 1994, thanks in part to a recommendation and referral by past USA Tennis Florida Board member, Donna Fales.
