“I am very excited to work with the St. Louis board in 2023-2024,” President John Kelly said. “We have a perfect mix of experienced board members — Hiroo, Ken and myself — as well as new board members Paul, Madison and Louann. I truly believe this group is totally aligned to grow tennis and enhance the tennis experience for everyone in 2023.
