On Saturday, November 24th, a contingent from the USTA, led by incoming president Dave Haggerty and Chief Executive, Community Tennis Kurt Kamperman, conducted the second in an ongoing series of “listening sessions” that the association is hosting in regard to the proposed changes in Junior Competition structure, slated to take effect in 2014. The session, attended by some 30 parents, coaches and teaching pros from six of the USTA’s 17 sections, was held at the Fitness and Tennis Center of Rocky Hill (Conn.), during the boys’ and girls’ 14-and-under National Open.
“We are here for one reason,” said Haggerty as he addressed the attendees at the start of the session. “And that is to listen and to learn. If you have concerns; if you have questions, we want to hear them, because it is only through this kind of give-and-take that we will be able to develop the best and most successful competitive structure. ”
