Dan Santorum Receives National Public Parks Honor

PTR CEO Dan Santorum received the National Public Parks Tennis Association (NPPTA) Jean and Hollis Smith Lifetime Achievement Award, which was presented in New York in September. The annual award recognizes an individual who has been an outstanding advocate, and who has promoted the NPPTA across the country.

“Dan has been a huge proponent of educating and certifying tennis coaches in the public parks,” said NPPTA President Scott Hanover, in a short presentation during the Public Parks Committee at the USTA Semi-Annual Meeting. “The PTR ACE Program, which he started, has played a huge role in providing quality tennis coach education in the parks, as well as increasing the number of coaches of color.”
