Todd Todd Norton
USTA Southern Tennis Service Representative for South Carolina
While officially a staff member of the USTA Southern Section, Todd, our former Greenville Community Coordinator, will work exclusively with tennis facilities throughout SC, thus we consider him an integral part of the USTA South Carolina staff “team.” Todd’s goal as a TSR is to increase participation in tennis by promoting, developing, and servicing tennis programs in South Carolina by establishing strong relationships with the local delivery system including tennis and non-tennis facilities, organizations and volunteers. In this new role (created with USTA funding in the late summer of 2005), he will meet with tennis facility personnel across the state to assess their needs and as necessary, provide awareness, education, marketing materials and support for increasing tennis participation at the local level. He will provide local marketing ideas, strategies and PR support to tennis facilities and will actively promote tennis opportunities for multicultural participants, instructors and volunteers to increase the diversity of tennis players and programs in our state.
