Club Fit’s Heath Hoover has been named Southern District President for the USPTA Eastern Division
Congratulations to our Assistant Director of Tennis and Adult Tennis Program Director Heath Hoover on his new position as Southern District President for the USPTA Eastern Division!
Heath — who grew up in Wichita Falls, Texas — was taught to play tennis when he was eight years old by his father, a former college player and local junior high school coach.
Heath became a certified teaching pro with the USPTA (U.S. Professional Tennis Association) in 1997 in Ft. Worth, Texas. He moved to the Northeast in 1999 and has been an active member of the USPTA for 22 years. In 2009, he won the Cardio Tennis Fast Feed contest for the Eastern Division. He then went on to take second place in the National Cardio Tennis Fast Feed contest at the USPTA National Conference in Marco Island, Florida. Heath continues to attend multiple Eastern conferences every year. This year, the Eastern USPTA Board of Directors voted him in as Southern District President after current Eastern President, Geoff Jagdfeld, nominated him for the position.
There are six district presidents within the Eastern Division: Manhattan, New Jersey, Western, Northern, Long Island, & Southern. The Southern District is made up of Westchester & Rockland Counties. Each district’s president serves as a liaison between the district’s members and the Board of Directors. The district president is responsible for forming a committee within the district and to work with them to create and offer multiple events for the USPTA members of their district as well as neighboring districts — three educational events, two social events, and one charity event per calendar year. The district presidents also carry out various administrative duties as required to support their respective districts.
