Collier Local, USTA League Tennis Administration to Combine

September 10, 2013 09:31 AM
USTA League new web.jpgCollier County in USTA Florida's Region 7 has rolled out a league tennis pilot program, supported by local USPTA (United States Professional Tennis Association) pros and local community tennis alliances, whereby both local recreational and USTA leagues will be coordinated/administered by one individual.
 
Doug Welsh, the retired director of tennis at Quail Creek Country Club in Naples, will oversee all local league play as the local leagues coordinator, a USTA Florida independent contractor position. He will work closely with Linda Kleitch, the former USTA local league coordinator during the transition.
 
"Doug brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to USTA Collier through his tennis league management involvement, organizational skills and acquaintance with the local players and professionals," Kleitch said. "This program is unique in that Doug's wife, Vivian Welsh, is the coordinator of the Collier County local leagues. Given the close working relationship with Vivian and myself throughout the past many years, there is great confidence both leagues can work together as a given entity for the betterment of tennis in Collier County."
 
USTA Florida League Coordinator Sandy Marshall says the effort will bring greater harmony and growth to all adult leagues in Collier County.
 
"It has been very well received in the tennis community and a very positive partnership with the various entities," Marshall said.
 
Prior to initiating the change in September, Collier County tennis leaders rallied at the Collier County USPTA Pro Meeting in late August, where Kleitch and the Welshes thanked the pros for their support of the USTA Florida and CTA tennis leagues. Kleitch announced that Doug Welsh would be the local league coordinator for USTA Leagues beginning in September 2013 with the inception of the fall league season.
