New Lexington Local League Coordinator

Leslie Russ
Local League Coordinator
Lexington, KY

Welcome Lexington's newest edition to USTA League Tennis!  Leslie Russ will be overseeing Tri-Level and Lexington's Fall League as well as assisting where needed for all USTA leagues.

Leslie starting playing tennis when she was eleven years old.  Her favorite brother (SHHHH!) was a tennis player and in order to spend time with him, she became interested and let him teach her how to play.  She practiced and played as much as she possibly could, at times hitting against the wall at the local YMCA.  She went on to  play on her high school tennis team and in tournaments during this time, however hung up her racquet when she went off to college.

If you were to ask her husband, he was actually auditioning "mixed doubles" partners when they first met. He asked her to play in an intramural tennis tournament. The rest is history!  Two daughters later and off to college, three of the four family members are tennis players!

If you live in the Lexington area and are interested in getting involved in League tennis, maybe you are just like Leslie. Hung up your racquet for a while to go off to school and then have a family.  It's never too late to pick up that racquet and start playing again!!

Reach out to Leslie and welcome her and/or ask her how to become involved again.
