Travis Tressler

Head Pro



Travis possesses a strong tennis background with experience at several public tennis and racquet sports facilities.

Travis possesses a strong tennis background with experience at several public tennis and racquet sports facilities. Within his nine months at USTA Florida managed Play Tennis Gainesville, Tressler helped establish adult and junior programming at Tom Petty Park, in addition to his extensive instructional work with junior, adult, adaptive and wheelchair programming at the Joyce Oransky Tennis Center.

A USTA junior competitive player since the age of 7 who entered the top 100 in the Midwest boy’s 18s, Travis was born and raised in Champaign, Ill., where his love of the game was heavily influenced by his family. He landed his first tennis coaching job at the age of 16 in his hometown and eventually helped lead several youth teams to Illinois High School Association sectional title matches and finishes. He went on to attend the University of Alabama where he was a member of the club tennis team and served as team manager for the D1 men’s tennis team.

“I hope to continue introducing new players to the facility, as well as provide a positive experience to returning tennis and pickleball players.”
