The South Yarmouth Tennis Club is offering a limited number of Internships for the 2019 summer season to promising Junior tennis players ages 13-17 who are interested in learning about and assisting in the management of an active tennis club.

Under the mentorship of Club Manager Steve Francis, former Athletic Director at Barnstable High School, and Doug Leonard, SYTC Head Pro and Monomoy Boys Varsity Tennis Head Coach, interns will learn and assist with the art of clay court grooming and maintenance, member interaction skills both in-person and on the telephone, on-court supervision and instruction of young tennis players, internet court reservations, payment and player database systems, facilities equipment maintenance and repair, and tennis exhibition and events support.

Each Intern will receive a free Juniors Membership at the club which provides access to the club’s six clay courts from 7:30 AM to dusk daily with no court fees, June 15 to Labor Day. Interns will provide on average approximately 6 hours of service to the club weekly.

The ideal intern will demonstrate a high degree of enthusiasm for the game of tennis, a commitment to improving their own tennis skills, a proficient level of play that enables him/her to assist instructional programs for younger players, the desire to learn and provide service to the club, and a friendly, outgoing personality.

“We look forward to this exciting new program which will help to develop the players and managers of tomorrow and provide valuable experience for interns to be added to their college resume,” said Steve Francis.
