Hilton Head Island, SC - - Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) presented its annual awards this week during the PTR International Tennis Symposium. The event, which includes more than 40 educational presentations for tennis coaches, is underway through February 13, on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
Home to the University of Virginia’s varsity teams and an active member base, The Sports Club and world-class racquet facilities at Boar’s Head Resort offer an unparalleled player experience. The 26-court complex boasts multiple playing surfaces, including indoor and outdoor hard courts and outdoor clay surfaces. In 2019, UVA also broke ground and is currently building a state-of-the-art tennis stadium for their top ranked NCAA teams at the resort.
The vibrancy of this unique facility can be experienced firsthand with numerous daily drop-in clinics, as well as an array of seasonal award-winning kids camps and adult academies. The resort is home to two professional tournaments (The Boar’s Head Resort Women’s Open and the Charlottesville Men’s Pro Challenger) and is the ongoing host of the Special Olympics Xperience Tennis Invitational.
Aside from the outstanding facilities, Boar’s Head is possibly most known for its first-class instructors and pro staff who can be seen providing top-level instruction every day to the resort’s members and hotel guests. Jon Sarosiek, Director of Sports and Wellness, accepted the award for the club.
