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.”

Lena, being a true local to the Fort Walton Beach area, is excited to assist upcoming tennis players in the exact place she found her love for the sport. Lena found her love for tennis during her 6th grade year at Bruner Middle School and trained at the Fort Walton Beach Tennis Center. She also played in local and semi-local USTA tournaments. With middle school being where she found her love for the game, she is hoping to eventually make her way to coaching local middle school teams! When Lena is not assisting at the tennis facility, she is watching her daughter on the tennis court or watching her son on the baseball field. “To be able to give your knowledge to the community youth is one of the best things we can do.”

“Tennis has and will always be my passion and choice as an occupation, and I am excited to aid in the regrowth of tennis facilities across the state of Florida.”
