Domino Boulware

Boulware_DominoHOF

Domino Boulware is a tennis professional and coach in Columbia, South Carolina. Along with serving as a tennis professional at Greenview Community Park for over 30 years, he has coached at various schools throughout the midlands. Boulware has encouraged many youth and adults to participate in USTA programs such as Junior Team Tennis, Adult Leagues and Tennis Apprentice. He credits the training he received from the ACE Professional Tennis Registry and USTA for many of his accomplishments in the tennis community.

Boulware was instrumental in developing the tennis program at Greenview Community Park. He founded the Bolden/Martin Math and Science Camp (which has run for over 10 years). During the camp, students gather around the net to listen to distinguished speakers before and after rigorous tennis drills. He encourages kids to grow academically and professionally, and to serve the community.

After becoming certified with the Professional Tennis Registry in 1995, Boulware realized the need for a formal organization to help grass roots children become involved in the tennis world. This led him to establish the DD&J Junior Tennis Foundation whose primary objectives are to teach young people of all ages and economic circumstances the skill of tennis competition, and to use the power of the game to build character, support educational achievement and to reduce juvenile problems that lead to delinquency, teen pregnancy and other social ills. DD&J, which received the USTA SC Community Service Award in 1998, also provides tennis scholarships to children who cannot otherwise afford to pay the season’s fees.

Boulware has worked with school district administrators and athletic directors to develop partnerships to empower their teachers to learn the sport of tennis, so that the game can be enjoyed and shared with their students. He has also served as head of the Mayor’s Skills and Drills Tennis Program for the City of Columbia. Boulware has embedded himself in the tennis community of South Carolina, and has served as a mentor, coach and inspiration to many. His dedication to the sport has manifested itself in many ways, including facilitating college scholarships for kids, coaching ranked players, mentoring underprivileged children and instilling a lifelong love of the sport.

Domino Boulware is married to Jacqueline “Jackie” Boulware, a retired National Board Certified school teacher. She is a PTR certified tennis teaching professional, and one of the founders of the DD&J Junior Tennis children’s program at Greenview Park. They have three children; Delano, Delandrea and Jamone. Delano is a recreational tennis player who is employed with the Richland County Recreation Commission, Delandrea resides with her husband Anthony in Arizona, and Jamone is a PTR certified teaching professional.
