Hilton Head Island (South Carolina), Sept 12 (UNI) Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) on Wednesday announced that its CEO, Dan Santorum, received the National Public Parks Tennis Association (NPPTA) Jean and Hollis Smith Lifetime Achievement Award. The award, presented annually, recognises an individual who has been an outstanding advocate, and who has promoted the NPPTA across the country.



Past recipients include Hollis Smith, Alan G. Schwartz, Jodie Adams, Billie Jean King, Pat Freebody, Jean Smith, Karen Ford, NRPA, Kurt Kamperman, Ken McAllister, Scott Hanover, Pam Sloan and Katrina Adams.



According to Director of Communications and Editor of TennisPro Magazine Peggy Edwards, the Lifetime Achievement award was presented at the USTA’s Public Parks Committee meeting in New York City by NPPTA President, Scott Hanover.



In his presentation, Hanover said, “Dan Santorum has been a huge proponent of educating and certifying tennis coaches in the public parks. The PTR ACE Program, which he started, has played a huge role in providing quality tennis coach education in the parks, as well as increasing the number of coaches of color. We cannot think of a more deserving candidate for 2018."



PTR President, Rodney Harmon commented, “As a former spokesperson for the PTR ACE Program, I applaud the selection of Dan for this award. He has worked passionately to promote tennis education and certification in the public parks.”



The award is named for Jean and Hollis Smith, who are lifelong contributors to the NPPTA. Hollis serves on the NPPTA board, and Jean, now deceased, contributed her time for many years to the organization’s tournament, which is in its 95th year.



PTR is the largest global organisation of tennis coaching professionals with nearly 16,500 members in 125 countries. It has the greatest percentage of multicultural and women members of any such organisation. PTR is dedicated to educating, certifying and serving tennis teachers and coaches around the world in order to grow the game. PTR launched a subsidiary in 2018, Professional Pickleball Registry to educate and certify pickleball coaches.
