It was a lucky day for The Quechee Club when Head Tennis
Professional Chuck Kinyon, convinced tennis professional David Bailey to join
the staff specifically to manage and build the junior racquet programs. That
was in 2010. David’s experience with junior programs, as well as coaching and
management in the tennis world is extensive.
After playing tennis for four years at Nasson College in Maine, David was ready to follow that sports path. His career took him far and wide largely due to his employment with the renowned Peter Burwash International (PBI) a tennis management consulting firm based in Honolulu, Hawaii. As a member of the administrative management team, David developed, managed, and staffed tennis programs in luxury resorts, camps, clubs, and multipurpose facilities, including Grove Isle Yacht and Tennis Club in Miami, Doral Resorts and Country Club in Miami, and Seabrook Island Resort in Charleston, South Carolina, where he was the tennis director with multiple roles. He also coached tennis and was responsible for program development, but he also started pro shops, dealt with inventory, staffing, and management. On top of that, he ran multiple tennis events and tournaments that PBI and other corporations – Volvo, IBM, Federal Express, Pfizer and many others – sponsored. In 1991, David was named Peter Burwash International professional of the year.
In his various positions, David, was on top of the bottom line to raise interest in the sport of tennis, raise revenue, and increase membership. A decorated member of the United States Professional Tennis Association (USTA), he directed USTA Quickstart Junior leagues in many locations throughout his career.
