Jack Schore (link to Jack’s bio) got the ball rolling 40 years ago when left law school to pursue his passion of teaching tennis at the highest level in a very personal way. Ten years later, Jack met Kevin Dowdell (link to Kevin’s bio) when Kevin began playing and mentoring some of Jack’s top juniors and the two became friends. Fast forward to 2005 when Jack’s passion for building a community tennis center and Kevin’s vision of “teaching the game of life through tennis” intersected, and they decided to pursue their common goals as a team. Anne Pallie quickly became a crucial part of the team based on her business acumen and years of experience as a commercial real estate developer. And Vicki Datlow (link to Vicki’s bio) later joined the effort — she has worked with Jack for more than a fifteen years to build programs and grow tennis. After 7 long years of searching for the right location in the greater Washington area, writing proposals and completing the countless other tasks associated with building a tennis center from the ground up, MTP opened for business in September 2012.
With Jack’s and Vicki’s 80 plus years of combined professional tennis experience and Kevin’s and Anne’s combined 55 years of business experience, the MTP management team has what it takes to accomplish their ambitious goals and dreams. Together, they have created a community tennis center that provides a fun, high-energy environment for tennis players of all levels and all ages to accomplish their dreams and goals. MTP is about Passion for the lifetime sport of tennis, Customer Focus, Integrity and Excellence and these are the ingredients that create the unique experience and atmosphere that sets MTP apart.
MTP is more than just a tennis center – it’s a gathering place for the community. From adults socializing at mixers to kids completing their homework on free Wi-Fi before and after tennis lessons, MTP provides a welcoming and open atmosphere that fosters relationship building, learning, and FUN for everyone. At MTP, the “Tennis Everyone” tagline says it all!
