Dave Parker – Tennis Director
We are thrilled to welcome Dave Parker as our Tennis Director. Dave’s life has been rooted in a love and passion for tennis, and he is a tremendously talented player in his own right. Dave was a nationally-ranked Junior player in the 12, 14, 16, and 18 year-old age groups. During his high school years, he was a state tennis champion and national interscholastic singles champion. Dave’s excellence in high school tennis earned him a full athletic scholarship to UCLA. At UCLA he had a very successful college career, including a season where his team went undefeated and won the NCAA Tennis Team Championship (a feat that has since never been duplicated). Dave was on the ATP Tour from 1976 – 1981 and during that time he held a world ranking.
This success and dedication led Dave to pursue careers and continued involvement in tennis at the highest levels. He has been the Tournament Director for numerous USTA National, NCAA, NAIA, and Regional tournaments. He continues to be involved with the USTA, working with the National Junior Committee to develop the curriculum.
Dave loves spending his summers in Maine and has a passion for teaching children. Working with Dave allows children of all ages and skill levels to find a comfort with their game. Dave has a great feel for providing campers with just the right amount of motivation and instructional prowess to advance their game to the next level.
