Jack Schore, Chief Executive Officer
Jack Schore’s influence on the tennis landscape in the DC metropolitan area is legendary. He has coached and mentored thousands of young people in the Mid-Atlantic region over the last 30 years. Also a successful entrepreneur, Jack was the first person to build an indoor tennis center on the grounds of a private school in the U.S. And while hundreds of his students have gone on to receive college scholarships for athletic and academic performance, some have said “you never graduate from Jack Schore Tennis, you just keep progressing through life!”
Jack has coached five players ranked in the top fifty in the world, including Grand Slam champions in doubles, and he was inducted into the Mid-Atlantic Tennis Hall of Fame in 2000. Jack won nine conference titles and a national championship as a high school varsity tennis coach and he holds the all-time best win-loss percentage at the University of Maryland. He is a three-time winner of the Montgomery County Tennis Association “Tennis Coach of the Year”, he has been named both Washington Post “Coach of the Year” and Washingtonian Magazine “Pro of the Year.”
Jack launched the Urban Leadership Development Group (ULDG) at the suggestion of Arthur Ashe and, as a result, has provided full scholarships totaling more than $400,000 for students who would have not otherwise had the opportunity to attend the renowned Bullis School in Potomac, MD. Many of Jack’s most cherished accomplishments relate to the graduates of the ULDG program. His students would be the first to tell you that Jack teaches so much more than tennis. Jack has taught more than 40,000 students from Montgomery County – he is well known, trusted and one of the most successful tennis coaches in the United States. Jack has dedicated his life to the futures of student-athletes. In fact, his passion for coaching and mentoring youth is so strong; he plans to do it until he is 120!
Jack resides in Amissville, VA with his wife, Anne Pallie, and Jack and Anne have several horses, two dogs and a cat.
