STC’s Maria Petito

Maria Petito

Jay Clayton Wilson

Maria Petito is our kind of tennis player. She never touched a racket until 1999 when she took a six week series of Bob Lewis’ 1-2-3 tennis lessons. The members who took lessons with her subsequently formed their own group and have played together ever since – that would be 16 years! In the same way, our six teaching pros give free and private lessons where we meet new players, improve our games and develop life-long friendships. Maria is proof. Even in this heat she wonders whether the club might be interested in a singles group for OP. That enthusiasm is why she is our kind of tennis player.

Maria says, “When an opportunity arose for a new Coordinator, I submitted my application. I knew this would be a great place in which to work. I worked with Kay Koontz for a short time and took copious notes! Kay was very patient and explained everything very well. She, Nancy and Jon were always available if I had questions. If a member asked me a question and I didn’t have the answer, I told them I’d find the answer and call them back, which I always did. The members have been very nice and appreciative of Maria. STC is so pleased to have Maria on board.
