Melissa Pine was a national level junior from the 1990’s and she’s a former NCAA player, where she gained a tennis academic scholarship and went on to earn her degree. She also coached the women’s NCAA team at Washington State.
Most impressively, she is the current tournament director for the year end finals of the WTA tour and she’s also the WTA tour Vice President of Asia Pacific based out of Singapore. She has rubbed shoulders with Billie Jean King, the Williams sisters, Caroline Wozniaki and all the WTA tour stars.
Melissa is from Outer Cove / Middle Cove and comes home a fair bit. She has agreed to come speak to the program players this coming Wednesday at 1pm. This will be a great experience for any tennis fan.
Open to any player interested, but the talk is geared toward the kids.
