Central Arizona Hires New Tennis Service Representative

USTA Central Arizona Hires New Tennis Service Representative
AshAshley Redman has been hired as the new Tennis Service Representative for Central Arizona. Ashley was hired earlier this month after Spencer Wayman, the previous TSR had become the new Managing Director for the district. 
Ashley grew up in Silver City, NM and started playing tennis when she was 13. A family friend told Ashley about a summer tennis camp at WNMU (Western New Mexico University), so she signed up. As Ashley recalls, “I didn’t know anything about tennis and showed up the first day with a wooden racquet, courtesy of my generous grandparents. The coach suggested that I use his extra racquet for the day and I remember feeling so privileged to be using the “coach’s” racquet!  Ever since that time, my love of tennis has continued to grow.”
Ashley played all 4 years of high school tennis, participated in tournaments over the summers and eventually earned the honors of team captain her senior year. Following high school, Ashley moved to Las Cruces, NM to attend New Mexico State University.
Upon starting NMSU, Ashley signed up for an Intermediate Tennis class as a PE credit in order to meet some tennis players. After a year of playing for fun Ashley wanted something more, so she founded the NMSU Tennis Club in 2007 and connected with the USTA Tennis On Campus program for some more competitive playing opportunities. Ashley graduated from NMSU with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and studied Managerial Leadership and Sports Marketing.  
Ashley is very excited to be working with the USTA and is eager to work with the public, get to know the community, and grow tennis throughout Central Arizona. Ashley can be reached at TSR@phoenixtennis.com or 480-639-6704.
