Former USTA Nevada Board President Tim Blenkiron was elected to serve as the 2015-2016 Intermountain Tennis Association Board President during the ITA Annual Meeting in December.

Blenkiron, a former UNLV tennis alum who won the NCAA Championship in 1997, is the current Executive Director of the No Quit Tennis Academy in Las Vegas, and has coached numerous junior, adult and professional players, including American WTA player Asia Muhammad.

"As we move forward with our strategic plan, it is a huge benefit to be able to turn to Tim's expertise and incredible leadership skills on and off the court," said USTA Intermountain Executive Director Rob Scott. "I'm confident Tim will make enormous contributions to our organization as we continue to support and develop new community tennis programs and strengthening our partnerships in the industry. Tim's professionalism is second to none."

In 2010, Blenkiron was selected as an elite National USTA coach to run a USTA Regional Training Center. He also spent six years as the Head Pro at Canyon Gate Country Club where he caught the eyes of tennis great Andre Agassi who recruited him to run the Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation Tennis Program. Tim's work at the Andre Agassi Boys and Girls Club has been recognized in numerous media outlets including Fox Sports and the Tennis Channel. The program he created resulted in over 20 nationally ranked players, eight of which became Top 25 in the U.S.
