Tennis coach Jorge Capestany Honored with Master Professional Status

(This entry was originally published in this blog December 2008 and it is based on the information of that time.)

Jorge Capestany is not a big name in the tennis world, not even in USA yet. However, it seems the manager of Hope College’s DeWitt Tennis Center, Capestany, has just made another step to become a famous tennis instructor in the country. After 12 year in coaching, Jorge Capestany has received Master Professional status from the Professional tennis registry.

Mlive reported:

The Professional Tennis Registry has honored him with Master Professional status, and he will be recognized at a symposium in February in Hilton Head, S.C., where the PTR is based. There will be representatives from 47 countries at the event.

The PTR and the United States Professional Tennis Association are the only organizations in the United States that certify tennis-teaching professionals. The USPTA awarded Capestany Master Professional status in 1992, and the fact he received the honor with the PTR puts him in exclusive company.

Jorge Capestany is also very happy with this honor. Jorge Capestany and his family came from Cuba and initially settled down in Michigan. However, his family shifted to Hudsonville later on as they had sponsorship from the Immanuel Christian Reformed Church.
