Each month, USTA North Carolina will celebrate a tennis volunteer who is doing something to promote and develop the growth of tennis. From grass-roots community activists to family volunteers, on-court instructors to behind-the-scenes volunteers, these are the people who make tennis happen. Nominate someone today!
All we need is the volunteer's name, a paragraph or two explaining why they deserve to be recognized and, if possible, a small picture of the volunteer. Send your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
JANUARY 2015 VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH
- Vic Ramsey -
Vic has coached the girls' tennis team for 15 years and the boys' tennis team for 10 years at Currituck High School. During Vic’s years of coaching, he has never cut a player that has tried out for the team. Yes, this means he practiced the no-cut policy before there was one.
In addition, Vic helped organize the Currituck Tennis Association in 2004 and has been an instrumental organizer since the CTA's foundation. Vic also volunteers his summers to run the local junior tennis program. They run week-long programs that help introduce tennis to local junior players. Vic wears multiple hats in the Currituck region.
The "Volunteer of the Month" is sponsored by Team Connection and each recipient will receive a $25 gift certificate for their service. The North Carolina Tennis Service Recognition Committee selects recipients the first week of each month.
