Meet our Newest Pro
The Club is proud to announce the hiring of Don Martin of Tri-State Athletic Club to oversee tennis activities at ECC. Don will serve as our new Head Tennis Professional. He is a certified USPTA and PTR professional. He has been the Director of Tennis at Tri-State Athletic Club since 1990 and brings decades of experience to the ECC team.
Don’s years of teaching and knowledge of Evansville area tennis will bring new ideas, energy, and opportunities to the ECC tennis program. He is committed to providing a program of club tennis that is enjoyed by all members whether they play socially or competitively. Don says, “The trends in the industry are to introduce play and competition from the earliest stages of youth all the way up to adults.”
Don with the help of other professionals from the Tri-State Athletic Club will bring some of these new programs to ECC. Quick-Start tennis is a program specifically designed to introduce and keep youth involved in the sport of tennis. Learn Tennis Fast introduces and keeps adults playing while having fun competing. Don also envisions “a youth and adult area country club team for both men and women as a great additional program for ECC members.” He has already put the wheels in motion with the area clubs to
implement this idea.
Don is looking forward to meeting and communicating with ECC members to get their ideas on what they want the tennis program to be at their club.
