WTA and PTR Sign Partnership AgreementTim Strawn
The WTA and PTR signed an agreement designating PTR as an Official Partner of the WTA Coach Program. For several years, PTR and WTA have worked together to facilitate formal coaching pathways for tour-level players and their coaches.
Established in January 2017, the WTA Coach Program has been designed to professionalize, standardize and recognize the important role of coaching on the WTA Tour. Under the new agreement, WTA and PTR will partner on community outreach and educational projects, including certification through the WTA Tour Coach Program—with a particular focus on former WTA tour players.
“The WTA Coach Program highlights and supports the vital contributions coaches make to the success of the tour,” says WTA CEO and Chairman Steve Simon. “I’m excited by the potential for the WTA’s partnership with PTR to see an increase in the number of certified and licensed women tennis coaches worldwide.”
