Master Professional

Master Professionals have achieved USPTA's highest tested rating of Elite Professional, plus earned remarkable achievements in areas such as teaching, playing, industry service and education. They make up less than 1 percent of USPTA’s membership, and should be capable of high-level job requirements, such as those for general manager, director of tennis and head tennis professional.

The USTA does not certify lawn tennis coaches:  it does offer this coaching theory education.  In combination with the USPTA Elite Professional certification,  this is equivalent to ITF Level V.  

The Master Professional designation is not dependent --  like ITF/USOC National Coach certifications -- on appointment.  Rather, uniquely to the USPTA,  it is based in documented work.  Some 185 professionals worldwide have received the designation since 1927.
