Engel Named Director Of Tennis And Racquet Sports At GPS

  • Monday, May 20, 2024
GPS recently announced that Allison Engel has been named its Director of Tennis & Racquets Sports after a national search led by McMahon Careers and The Finney Group. A graduate of James Madison University, Engel currently resides in Richmond, Virginia, most recently organizing and teaching tennis and pickleball at Westwood Club, a prestigious, member-owned private racquet club. Prior to Westwood, she was the Director of Tennis at Lakeside Park Club, where she tripled member participation in three years and enjoyed creating memorable member events. 

A graduate of the Certified Racquet Sports Executive program, Engel also holds certifications through USPTA (Tennis and Platform), PPR (Pickleball), PCR (Padel), and ITPA (Fitness).
Prior to fully committing herself to a career in the tennis industry, Engel spent 10 years as a middle school Spanish teacher in Virginia. She is excited for her past career as an educator to merge with her more recent experiences as a tennis professional while filling this unique role at GPS.

“We are so fortunate that Sue Bartlett will remain a part of the tennis program she built and grew as she will stay on as the Head Varsity Tennis Coach & Tennis Professional,” says Head of School Megan D. Cover. “Allison is also thrilled to work alongside current coaches Sarah Evans Pagnani and Chad Winters, as they endeavor to provide the optimal racquet experience in a constantly evolving industry here in Chattanooga.”
