USTA Middle States is pleased to welcome Kelly Rasero as the newest member of its staff.
As the Tennis Service Representative for the Delaware District, Kelly will work under the direction of Kasey Connors, Associate Director of Community Development. Kelly’s role is to develop youth and adult tennis programs at clubs, park and recreation agencies, and at schools in the state of Delaware. Her responsibilities also include increasing tennis participation by promoting and developing programs in non-tennis facilities and organizations.
Kelly comes to Middle States from the Kennett Country Club where she spent the past 13 years implementing youth tennis programs, including 10 and Under Tennis and USTA Jr. Team Tennis. She’s been playing tennis recreational for nearly 35 years, starting at Wilmington’s Bellevue Tennis Center as a junior and continuing into adult competition in various USTA leagues, the Wilmington Cup, and the Philadelphia Cup.
Kelly played tennis for Archmere Academy in Claymont, with recently-retired Delaware TSR Nancy Keiper as her head coach. The team won two Delaware state titles, and Kelly was the 2nd Doubles State Champion in 1986.
Kelly is proud to say that her family is full of tennis enthusiasts. Her husband plays on a mixed doubles and men’s team, and both of her children compete on USTA squads and Delaware Junior Team Tennis.
Kelly graduated from James Madison University with a Bachelor’s degree in Art and a concentration in Graphic Design. She previously worked in New Jersey as a graphic artist and art director before moving back to the area and settling in Kennett Square, Pa. with her family.
Please join us in welcoming Kelly to the Middle States team.
