Coach Redondo Receives Award From USTA/ITA

Stockton, Calif.- For the second consecutive year, the USTA/ITA has recognized and awarded Director of Tennis and Head Men's Tennis Coach Ryan Redondo for his work with organizing QuickStart tennis programs for kids.  

Upon receiving the award, Coach Redondo stated, "I am honored to receive this award for the second year in a row."

A little about the award from the USTA/ITA site: 

The USTA/ITA National Campus & Community Outreach Award is presented each year to a college coach who provides a leadership role in increasing tennis participation throughout his or her community, both on and off campus. Among the USTA/ITA partner programs available to assist coaches in giving back are Campus Kids' Days, Campus QuickStart, Campus Showdowns and Tennis On Campus.

The USTA/ITA National QuickStart Provider of the Year Award recognizes a college coach who has promoted the 10 and Under Tennis format to elementary school children by hosting QuickStart programs on campus. With smaller racquets, softer balls and shorter courts, 10 and Under Tennis ensures that America's newest tennis players enjoy the sport from their very first forehand.
