International Master Professionals

PTR established the International Master Professional designation to recognize those individuals who have made significant contributions to PTR and the game of tennis throughout their careers. It is PTR’s belief that an International Master Professional should be a strong representative of PTR and the sport - to be known as a master talent developer, exhibit the highest ethical behavior on and off the court, and one who displays the highest standards of excellence in the tennis profession. It is expected that the applicant has shown growth in their knowledge of the game, a strong involvement in introducing tennis to their community, regional expertise in teaching and coaching, dedication to the mission of PTR and a commitment to developing professionally.
