As an important and valued tennis thought leader in our section, the USTA Eastern Board of Directors and staff cordially extends an invitation to you to join us for the 2019 Eastern Tennis Conference, January 25 - 26, 2019, at the Renaissance Westchester Hotel.


The Eastern Tennis Conference is our section's annual professional development gathering, where tennis leaders and professionals convene to learn about the state of competitive and community tennis, discuss new trends and it is where many new and innovative collaborations are born to grow the game in our section.


The two-day conference will include thought-provoking programming including on-court demonstrations and experiences, off-court classes, and panel discussions and breakout sessions, giving our select attendees an opportunity to learn and get to know one another in a conducive setting.



This year, the conference will feature presentations from all-star tennis professionals, including:


  • Mark Bey, USPTA Elite Professional, TV analyst & assistant coach of the Bryan Brothers
  • Emilio Sanchez Vicario, Co-Founder, Academia Sanchez-Casal & former ATP no. 7 in Singles & no. 1 in Doubles
  • Craig Morris, General Manager, USTA Community Tennis

...and many other top USTA executives.


On-court and off-court sessions are divided into three session tracks:


  • Business Development

  • Competitive Development

  • Community Development 


We hope this may be helpful in organizing your time at the conference and ensure you attend the sessions that are most relevant to your work. Contact Kelly Goodhart by email at goodhart@eastern.usta.com with any questions.
