Professional Tennis Management
The Professional Tennis Management (PTM) program is a collaboration between our kinesiology department and the United States Tennis Association (USTA).
We place a strong emphasis on player wellness and coaching as well as applied experience in program and facility management. This rare and unique combination will have graduates poised for successful careers in the tennis industry, and provides access to a career path with nearly 100 percent placement for new graduates.
Upon completion of the Kinesiology PTM minor, students will receive certification through both the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) and the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR). Students will have the opportunity to study in award-winning tennis facilities and learn from nationally recognized tennis teaching professionals.
- Our PTM program is co-directed by Adam Ford and Jorge Capestany. Jorge is also the manager of DeWitt Tennis Center and a USPTA Master Professional and PTR International Professional. Jorge is one of 10 people worldwide who has earned the Master Professional distinction with both the PTR and the USPTA.
