Large Facility Manager of the Year Award

Wendy Tatum - Palm Beach Gardens, FL

Wendy Tatum was named 2019 USPTA Large Facility Manager of the Year for her work as general manager at Palm Beach Gardens Tennis Center in Florida. In 2018, the Center was honored with the USTA Florida Member Organization of the Year Award, in recognition of the Center’s overall excellence in service to a broad spectrum of the tennis community. The Tennis Center belongs to the City of Palm Beach Gardens and works under a “special revenue” policy that requires all Center expenses to be paid from its revenues. While revenues have grown every year under Wendy’s stewardship, 2018 was notable, as income increased 25 percent to over $1 million, with 90 percent of revenue coming from programming. Tatum also manages a staff of 12 USPTA certified tennis professionals.
