Tennis Enthusiasts of Manatee & Sarasota Counties:
There is big news in the tennis community! Monumental efforts are underway to save the last true tennis club in the western part of Manatee county and to enhance the facilities of the United Tennis Club, not only to its former glory, but to make it a world-class facility for players and families. For years the club was a staple of the local tennis community and attracted players from around the country and quite literally, the world. As we all know, marketing our county and our area through sports has been proven to attract a very desirable visitor with possible home and business relocations. The incredible growth of our community can be directly attributed to sports in our area. It would be a shame to see a tennis club with such a storied history go by the wayside.
Marc Jarman, a recent transplant to our tennis community from the New Jersey area, has the vision to create a new model for the club and formulate a fabulous player and family-oriented facility, to not only return United/El Con to its former glory, but to go many steps further. Marc has enthusiastically partnered with Elizabeth Moore to realize their vision. We all know that Elizabeth has a passion for our tennis community and a drive to make this area a better place to live. But to make their vision happen, they will need help from all of our local tennis players to spread the word of good things to come. With Elizabeth on board, it's difficult to imagine anything but a winner from this facility. Yes, it can be that good!
We know that thousands of new homes are coming soon to the west side of the county and as these homes are built, families will need activities that they can do together. That is the strength of tennis. It’s not only a healthy, lifetime sport, but it is truly a sport with family participation. With IMG/Bollettieri being pretty much the epicenter of youth sports, the club couldn't be situated in a better place to attract new visitors and potential members.
We hope that the efforts of Marc and Elizabeth meet with much success, but we need YOUR help. Please sign this petition saying that you endorse their work and vision for the club to remain a community-based tennis club. We hope that the club will truly be invigorated by your enthusiasm! Thank you local tennis community and we hope to see you on the new, improved courts soon!
