Professional Tennis Management or PTM is where you get to follow your passion, TENNIS, and attach it to a number of different degrees at colleges and universities all over the country.
The tennis industry is at a point where there are MORE jobs available than there are people to fill them and there is a HUGE demand for those who have a passion and experience.
In fact, the shorter is so bad that our governing body (USTA) has created a special division to start more PTM programs across the country.
Not sure you're good enough to become a teaching professional? Don't worry, while college varsity players can pursue PTM, the fact is that 70% of PTM students do not play on their college team (And still land great jobs)!
PLUS... they gain the valuable experience that employers are looking for through paid internships, on-campus workshops and work experience at the university facility or nearby club.
When you graduate with a PTM Degree, you will have experienced teaching tennis, running social events and tournaments, stringing racquets, pro shop management, and you'll understand how tennis clubs operate. You'll be prepared with all of the KEY characteristics employers say they are looking for.
