Jayhawk Tennis Center hires new head pro


Vance VanPelt, director of tennis at Top Gun Tennis Academy and the boys and girls tennis coach at Hutchinson High School, has been named head professional at the Jayhawk Tennis Center in Lawrence.

The Jayhawk Tennis Center is home to the KU women’s tennis team.

“I’m extremely excited to be joining Kyle Markham and the staff at the Jayhawk Tennis Center,” VanPelt said. “The opportunity to work with Kansas Athletics and growing tennis in the Lawrence area is a dream come true.”

liljayhawker must either be a player or the parent of one who got beaten by one of the Salthawks!

I've seen his teams and the Jayhawk Facility staff should be very excited because his teams have always been good and his personality is great. His players seem to love him.
