Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center Tournament Director Named South Carolina League Volunteer of the Year
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.Â â€“ Jackie Reynecke, longtime tournament director of the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center, recently received top honors for her volunteer work in the Hilton Head Island tennis community. The United States Tennis Association (USTA) South Carolina named her the League Volunteer of the Year for 2013 for her work with the organizationâ€™s South Carolina tennis league.
Reynecke, who has been a local league coordinator for more than seven years and who resides on Hilton Head, also volunteers for the Tennis Association of Hilton Head Island (TAHHI). She has worked at the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort for 16 years where her main responsibility is organizing and managing the various tournaments hosted at the resort each year.
The Volunteer of the Year award is given to an individual who possesses outstanding dedication and service to the South Carolina League tennis programs. They must also be a motivator to players, league coordinators and provide enthusiastic leadership with special involvement in promoting tennis at the grassroots level.
"We are so fortunate to have such people and organizations dedicated to promoting and developing tennis," says Graham Cox, executive director of the USTA South Carolina. "Their accomplishments proudly contribute to our tennis history, yet their true achievement can be seen through the people and communities impacted by their passion and service."
â€śJackieâ€™s award for Local League Coordinator of the Year is very well deserved and a great honor,â€ť says John Kerr, director of tennis for Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort. â€śWe are so proud of all the hard work and countless hours she devotes to managing all the organizational details of coordinating our local leagues.â€ť
