Faber Receives Alex Gordon USPTA Professional of the Year


NEW YORK – Mark Faber of Toledo, Ohio was named the Alex Gordon Professional of the Year at the USPTA General Membership Meeting on Friday during the 2018 Tennis Teachers Conference at the Grand Hyatt New York in New York City. The Alex Gordon Professional of the Year Award recognizes a member who, over a calendar year, has demonstrated exemplary achievement in seven areas, including: USPTA, allied organizations, club achievements, career development, volunteerism, coaching achievements and playing achievements.

Faber has been a USPTA member for 25 years, is the director of tennis at Twos Athletic Club in Toledo, Ohio and is currently a vice president on the USPTA national board of directors. He has been a no-cut high school coach for 24 years, has spoken at USTA, USPTA and high school divisional and national education events and is involved locally, sectionally, divisionally and nationally on committees and boards.  He also gives his time for charitable causes such at the American Cancer Society, Zepf Center and the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

“Being recognized as the Alex Gordon Professional of the Year is truly humbling,” said Faber. “When I started in the industry 25 years ago, I never imagined my name alongside the past recipients.  Although I am the one receiving the award, it is the team behind me that has made everything I have done possible, my USPTA team (my mentors), my Twos Athletic Club team (ownership, GM and staff) and most importantly my family (Lisa, Gabi and Christian).”

Founded in 1927, the USPTA is the global leader in tennis-teacher certification and professional development. With more than 14,000 members worldwide, the association raises the standards of tennis-teaching professionals and coaches and promotes a greater awareness of the sport.
