Superior Tennis SPRING 2019
The Town’s long-time tennis professional, Ted Murray, recently decided to move on and pursue other opportunities outside the country. We appreciate the lasting impact Ted made on the Superior tennis community. This spring, local tennis professional Susan Burke will begin directing the Town’s junior and adult tennis programming at the North Pool Tennis Courts. Sue has over 25 years of experience in the racket sports industry, having coached high school state champs, NCAA and Grand Slam Champs. She was a USTA National Coach, US Women’s Coach for the Pan Am Games, trainer for the Chinese Tennis Association and has been a recipient of multiple community service awards. We are excited to partner with someone of Sue’s caliber to help guide the program moving forward!
