Community Tennis Hits an ACE with Linda Curtis in 2006

December 21, 2005 10:03 AM
The community tennis department at USTA Florida is moving forward with Linda Curtis at the forefront.  Beginning January 2006, Linda will be promoted to Director of Community Development; this position following her prior title, Coordinator of Community Outreach & CTA Development.

After six years of employment and four years prior of volunteer work with the organization, Linda has certainly earned respect among the Florida tennis community.  Linda’s leadership skills and thorough knowledge in this new director position will take community tennis to a new level throughout the state.

Linda plans to continue the growth and expansion of some of her favorite programs: Community Tennis Associations, Wheelchair Tennis, Adaptive Tennis and the Tennis in the Parks initiative in Florida.

“I am very excited about this promotion for Linda.  She has shown in her six years with the organization that she has a passion and enthusiasm to help us reach our mission in Florida communities,” Associate Executive Director, Community Tennis Andy McFarland said.  “She is a most valuable ingredient to the success of tennis in our section, and she will be an exceptional leader for years to come with USTA Florida.”

Prior to moving to the USTA Florida headquarters in Daytona Beach in 2005, Linda was a tennis devotee in her home county of Lee, and she was heavily involved with the Lee County Community Tennis Association, serving as a board member and executive director.  Linda now plays local league tennis in Volusia County.

The USTA Florida family is thrilled for Linda, and we hope to see community tennis reach new heights in 2006!  Congratulations, Linda!!
