Kay Butler

Teaching Professional

Kay Butler is a tennis professional certified by the United States Professional Tennis Registry (USPTR)

KayCroppedHeadOriginally from Texas, and after living and teaching tennis in Antwerp, Belgium since 1982, she discovered and fell in love with Palm Springs about 7 years ago. She then set out to use her seemingly boundless energies andKayButlerBusinessCard1 ideas for creating programs for newcomers and players of all abilities.

Her philosophy is simple. Have fun while you play. Her belief is that we all need to “keep moving”, and once we stop we are in trouble.

She went to college on a tennis scholarship, has a bachelor’s degree in physical education and a master’s degree in recreation administration, leisure studies, and art. She taught school for 17 years in Texas as a high school and junior high tennis teacher/coach. At the same time, she taught at the community college level and also developed a tennis program for the parks and recreation department in Wichita Falls, Texas.

Kay is the Founder and Executive Director of Grassroots Junior Tennis, Inc.(www.grassrootsjuniortennis.org), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit instructional program designed specifically for children in the Coachella Valley who may not otherwise be exposed to tennis – so they too can learn to appreciate and participate in our fine sport regardless of financial status.
