​The United States Tennis Association of South Carolina bids farewell to Mary Goins, Director of Leagues 

COLUMBIA, S.C. –  After a 25-year tenure with the United States Tennis Association of South Carolina, Mary Goins has announced her departure.  Mary managed over 20,000 league players, 16 League Coordinators and 9 annual League State Championships while serving as the Director of Leagues.   “It’s been a good run for me, and great for me,” reminisced Mary.

USTA South Carolina staff enjoyed Mary’s office visits, full of smiles, hugs and laughter. She could always be counted on for a good joke or story to brighten everyone’s day. She has been an asset to the office and to the organization. Her love of tennis and dedication to growing the sport is immeasurable.

Mary has graciously agreed to continue working with USTA South Carolina until the position has been filled. The Director of Leagues position will now be located at the USTA SC office in Columbia, SC. 

The United States Tennis Association of South Carolina is also looking to hire a new Junior Participation Coordinator.

Please call the USTA SC office at 803-781-2574 with any questions.
