Welcome Our New Junior Recreation Coordinator

November 6, 2014 09:30 AM



COLUMBIA, S. C.  Pamela Banks started playing tennis in her 30s.

In her new role with USTA South Carolina, she'll work to make sure others start much earlier.

Banks starts Friday as the office's new junior recreation coordinator.

She said she's excited to start working in tennis and looks forward to helping kids, including her 8-year-old daughter, Adriana, become more active through the lifelong sport.

As junior recreation coordinator, Banks will organize USTA School Tennis programming throughout South Carolina. She also will connect with after-school program providers and other organizations that offer programs for youths.

Banks also will promote the many available grants and resources the USTA has available for youth tennis programming.

Banks, who lives in Irmo, is originally from Anderson and grew up in Belton, "the tennis mecca of South Carolina," as she calls it.

She graduated from Belton-Honea Path High School and went onto what was then Central Wesleyan College in Central, S.C. She has worked in marketing and sales for the past 20 years.

She plays USTA league tennis mostly through the Columbia Tennis League.
