Changes are under way in the leadership of Greenville Junior Team Tennis.
Crimora Carter has been appointed as area program coordinator of Greenville JTT and takes on responsibilities held by the organization’s founder and executive director, Ashlyn Cousins.
Cousins said she wants to devote more time to her career in real estate yet still remain a part of the tennis program, which she started seven years ago.
“Crimora has been involved in our program for a few years now, first as a volunteer for our Under 10 kids program, then in leadership in our league,” said Cousins. “Until this new role, she held the area schools coordinator role.”
In 2014, Carter was selected USTA South Carolina’s JTT volunteer of the year.
Sonja Broderick is the new area schools coordinator for Greenville JTT.
Since its launch in 2008, Greenville JTT grew into the largest junior team program in the state with more than 700 players ages 6 to 18, and more than 100 volunteers helping with the program.
Cousins called it highly satisfying “to see the seeds of an idea about junior team tennis be planted in Greenville and for them to grow to where so many families have been impacted by what we offer.”
“This was started because of what I wanted for our family and our boys — to love the game and become lifetime players,” Cousins said. “This program has given us every bit of what I hoped for our family, and it’s exciting to see new families and returning families enjoy the benefits of a lifetime sport that I believe brings families together in play.”
