What is Professional Tennis Management?
If you love tennis, make your passion a career and get a degree in professional tennis management (PTM). Whether your goal is a career as a coach, running a facility or in court maintenance, PTM offers the tools and programs to get you started, including networking, paid internships, job placement and more.
Currently, six colleges offer a PTM program – Berry College, Ferris State, Hope College, Manhattanville College, Methodist University and the University of Central Florida.
