Jeremy Carl Named USPTA Mid-Atlantic Tennis Professional of the Year!
That’s right, our own MTVAC Head Tennis Pro and Blue Chip Tennis Academy Coach, Jeremy Carl, was just named the 2016 USPTA Mid-Atlantic Tennis Professional of the Year!
Best of the USPTA Mid-Atlantic Tennis
Jeremy was honored and presented with his award at a banquet on March 4, 2017. The awards banquet was part of the USPTA Mid-Atlantic Annual Spring Convention, held at Belle Haven Country Club in Alexandria, VA. The prestigious tennis honor is awarded annually to just one certified member in the USPTA Mid-Atlantic section and is voted on by fellow certified USPTA coaches. The pros vote based on accomplishments and efforts in USPTA involvement, USTA and other allied organization contributions, career development, volunteer work and coaching achievements.
Giving Back: For Love of the Game
Specifically, Jeremy was awarded for his commitment to spreading the game of tennis to the USPTA Mid-Atlantic Tennis and local communities. He has furthered his coaching knowledge through continuing education programs like the USTA High Performance Program and has educated fellow coaches through his presentations at USPTA and USTA workshops. He has also written articles published in both USPTA and PTR professional magazines. And within the local community, Jeremy has shown a real passion for spreading the game of tennis through a grassroots effort. By starting an outdoor after school program at Tucker Elementary School in Alexandria, VA, the kids can gain early exposure to learning tennis.
“I was very honored to receive this award and recognition from such an amazing group of coaching peers in the USPTA Mid-Atlantic section. It was also very special to have my daughter Maggie in the picture with me and my wife Melissa be at the awards ceremony.” -Jeremy Carl, 2016 USPTA Mid-Atlantic Tennis Professional of the Year
Jeremy loves sharing his passion for tennis with his daughter Maggie! She even helps him demonstrate drills:
