All of us at China Tennis Association, Mercedes-Benz “Swing for the Stars” and Beijing International Group join in extending our sincerest congratulations to Coach Jeff Bearup on his receiving the “USPTA National Industry Excellence Award” at the USPTA National Conference in Indian Wells (California) that was held on September 25-29.
Coach Bearup began serving as Mercedes-Benz “Swing for the Stars” international consultant & coach in the summer of 2007 at the famous Longwood Cricket Club (home of the first Davis Cup) in Chestnut Hill (Massachusetts). He traveled to Beijing in April 2008 to conduct the inaugural Mercedes-Benz “Swing for the Stars” National Coaches Clinic (streamed live to more than 7,000 coaches) and Mercedes-Benz “Swing for the Stars” Clinic. In his role as “SFS” consultant he authored the “Swing for the Stars” Junior Coach & Player Development Manuals that have become the standard for junior tennis training in China with distribution to thousands of junior players & coaches and primary school students & physical education teachers across China.
Coach Bearup will once again head up the Mercedes-Benz “Swing for the Stars” National Camp in Shenzhen in late October.
