PTR lost a dear member in the Spring of 2012 when Skip Nielsen passed away.
Skip’s life changed when he attended the PTR Certification Workshop and then the TennisUniversity with Dennis Van der Meer.
His wife, Tish, knew that Skip’s passion was tennis. Skip loved his annual pilgrimage back to Hilton Head Island for the PTR International Tennis Symposium each year where he truly felt “at home.”
So, when Skip passed away, Tish knew that Skip’s passion could live on when she established a Skip Nielsen fund through PTR Foundation.
On his obituary, Tish wrote that in lieu of flowers, donations should be sent to the PTR Foundation to help disadvantaged youth and the physically & mentally challenged, to play tennis!
The Foundation has already received over $500 in ear-marked donations from all over the country! Tish is looking forward to helping select the first recipient for the Skip Nielsen Scholarship who will be able to attend the PTR Symposium in 2013! And we know Skip will be pleased.
