, followed by the University of Texas at Tyler, which I believe had a B.A. in the same field, although I cannot find it now online. Kinesiology: Athletic Training is the closest I see, and that is not what I remembered. UT-Tyler has a Division II tennis team.
Ferris State University in Michigan has a B.A. in Professional Tennis Management
and a Division II tennis team
. Methodist College in North Carolina has a similar program and a Division III tennis team (no athletic scholarships).
EDIT: UT-Tyler is D-III, not D-II.
Tennis Management is an actual degree? What's the difference between Physical Education and Training as a tennis coach?
I plan to be an aspiring coach. Please e-mail me for more details.
