Jorge Andrew, Tennis Director at the Lexington County Tennis Complex, Earns USPTA Master Professional Distinction

South Carolina's Jorge Andrew, Mexico's Manuel S. Cervantes, California's Glen Howe and Texas' Jack Newman earned recognition as Master Professionals in the United States Professional Tennis Association, the highest professional rating within the tennis profession. 

Of the USPTA's 12,500 members, only approximately one percent have achieved the Master Professional designation. The four were recognized on Friday, September 19 during an awards presentation at the 76th World Conference on Tennis at The Westin Diplomat Resort and Spa in Hollywood, FL.

Becoming a Master Professional requires meeting a variety of personal and professional challenges, said USPTA CEO Tim Heckler.  Those who accomplish it acquire a set of skills that can set them apart in tennis operations and programming.

Before becoming eligible for the Master Professional designation, members must hold USPTA’s highest certification rating (Professional 1) for more than 10 years . Then, each must fulfill a broad spectrum of requirements, including making significant achievements in areas such as tennis teaching and coaching, business, education and volunteer work.
