2 TABLE OF CONTENTS Welcome About USTA Middle States Volunteer Organization Committees Board of Directors Volunteer Opportunities Staff Organization About the USTA Welcome, For the 94 years that USTA Middle States has been an organization, volunteers have been a most valuable resource in realizing our section s mission to promote and develop the growth of tennis. The volunteer experience comes in many different shapes and sizes. There are opportunities for those with little time to spare, and those looking for a larger time commitment. We welcome all ages. We celebrate diversity, passion and unique contributions. As a Middle States volunteer you become part of a diverse and eclectic community covering four states, and ultimately, part of a much larger community the USTA. Having volunteers who have served close to fifty years illustrates how rewarding the experience can be. We look forward to welcoming you into the Middle States tennis community. Ed McQuillin USTA Middle States President

3 USTA Middle States An Illustrious History Although tennis has been alive and well for more than 137 years within the boundaries of what is now known as USTA Middle States (USTA MS), the formal governing body for Middle States tennis was not organized until Forty-three years earlier, in 1881, the United States National Lawn Tennis Association (USNLTA) was formed through the initiative of Philadelphian Clarence Clark. This organization, now widely known as the USTA, was the first national body for tennis in the world and became the official governing body for amateur tennis in the United States. However, the national organization did not restructure its constitution to provide for sectional tennis associations until USTA MS, originally founded as the Middle States Lawn Tennis Association (MSLTA), was recognized as a section of the national organization when it was first founded in the Roaring Twenties. In its inaugural year under the national organization, Middle States listed 79 clubs and 9 member associations; individual membership did not exist at that time. The section comprised of the Philadelphia Tennis Association, the Philadelphia Inter- Club Tennis Association and the districts of Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Delaware, Bethlehem, Susquehanna Valley, Northeastern and Northwestern. USTA MS currently incorporates six districts: Allegheny Mountain, Central Pennsylvania, Delaware, Eastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Philadelphia Area, each with its own elected board of directors and delegate representation on the USTA/MS sectional board. In the late 1950s, the USTA began a registration program, charging individuals $3 to become members of the organization. One of the reasons I stayed on for four years as head of Middle States was because of the registration, which later became a membership drive, recalled William J. Clothier II, past Middle States President ( ). That was the thing that kept us all very busy during that time because we just simply had to raise money. In 1967, Susie Lee became the first paid employee of Middle States; her title was Executive Secretary and the sectional office was her home in Wayne, Pennsylvania. In 1976, her title was upgraded to Executive Director, a title she held until Today, the USTA MS office is located in historic Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, serving as the corporate headquarters as well as a vital resource for more than 2,000 volunteers and nearly 30,000 members throughout the section. In 1997, satellite offices were established, placing one full-time staff person within the boundaries of each district. Section staff now totals 28 fulland part-time employees. USTA MS also is proud of its volunteers who have gained national prominence, including USTA Presidents Joseph Sill Clark ( ), Martin L. Tressel ( ), Julia A. Levering ( ), Mervin A. Heller, Jr. ( ), Jane Brown Grimes ( ) and most recently Dave Haggerty ( ) who currently serves as President of the International Tennis Federation (ITF). Judy Levering not only enjoys the distinction of being elected the first female president of the Middle States Section in 1989, but also of being the first female to hold the office of USTA President in the national organization s then 118-year history! These organizational highlights are an abbreviated history of Middle States, which cannot be accurately recorded with dates and events alone. In fact, USTA MS history has been written by countless people who support the great game of tennis. These tennis enthusiasts are indispensable to the section s success. They provide competitive and recreational tennis to local communities, support the game by playing and impart their love of tennis to others. The USTA MS Section remains indebted to all staff, volunteers and members for its illustrious history!
