Jennifer Gregg, CAE named United States Tennis Association of South Carolina Executive Director

COLUMBIA, S.C. –  The United States Tennis Association of South Carolina is pleased to announce that Jennifer Gregg, CAE has been named Executive Director. Jennifer brings 22 years of USTA knowledge and experience, coupled with the Certified Association Executive designation from the American Society of Association Executives. Jennifer previously served as the USTA Maryland District Executive Director and the USTA Mid-Atlantic Section Associate Executive Director. She facilitates continuing education courses and Community Tennis Development workshops on the National, Section and District levels of the USTA covering various topics related to volunteerism, personal and organizational growth, leadership and team building. 

Since 2000, Jennifer has been the Volunteer Director for the Citi Open, an ATP/WTA Tour event in Washington, D.C. benefitting the Washington Tennis and Education Foundation. She has been heavily involved with Arthur Ashe Kids Day during the U.S. Open since it began and has been instrumental in several USTA National youth tennis events such as the White House Easter Egg Roll.

Prior to her experience with the USTA, Jennifer spent several years at the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and Freer Gallery of Art at the Smithsonian Institution and at the U.S. Naval Memorial.

No stranger to the Carolinas, Jennifer began playing tennis with her dad when she was 8 years old while growing up in Rocky Mount, NC, and is a graduate of UNC Greensboro. 

Jennifer’s passion lies in creating opportunities to introduce people to the sport of tennis throughout all communities. “As much as I love playing or watching tennis, for me the part that I enjoy most is being able to engage others in a sport I love,” Jennifer said. “It’s about creating opportunities to play, creating players, creating fans and creating a buzz around tennis.”

“I’m grateful to Graham Cox [former Executive Director] and Ernie James for creating a strong base and this great opportunity. They have set me up with a very talented staff and board,” Jennifer said. “Our biggest resource is our people, and I look forward to continuing the momentum he created. As we move forward the focus will be on innovation, player engagement, diversity and inclusion. I look forward to getting out into the community and creating new tennis fans and players throughout South Carolina.”

Jennifer Gregg plans to formally join the USTA SC staff in early June 2018.
