Welcome to Season 9, Episode 4 of the ParentingAces Podcast!
This week’s guest, Trevor Short, went from a top 20 nationally ranked junior tennis player to a NCAA Division 1 nationally ranked player at Middle Tennessee State University. Following his tennis career, Trevor founded T&S Events where he produced over 10 professional tennis events with some of the world’s top players including Andy Roddick, John Isner, the Bryan Brothers and more. Trevor also founded the Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs in partnership with the USTA which ran from 2009-2011.
While still running T&S Events, he became the General Manager of the Racquet Club of the South where he and Remington Reynolds met and co-founded Premier Live. Trevor’s 12 plus years in the tennis event industry continues to drive Premier Live into new heights on a daily basis. As the President of the Company, he oversees both the Necker Cup & Necker Open with Sir Richard Branson along with driving the company’s sales and player/celebrity relationships.
In 2009, Trevor partnered with Rem Reynolds and Steve Garelek to form the National Tennis Foundation. The NTF is committed to the development and advancement of under-served student athletes by providing opportunities through tennis and project-based educational and leadership programs. These programs are devised to promote academic excellence, healthy living, personal responsibility and character development.
THE NTF SEEKS TO EDUCATE OUR STUDENT ATHLETES ON THE IMPORTANCE OF CULTURAL DIVERSITY AND COEXISTENCE OF IDEAS AND VIEWS BOTH DOMESTICALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY.
Trevor and Premier Live are working with Rafael Nadal and his foundation to put on two very special events in Atlanta March 1-2, 2020 to benefit NTF! You can learn more about the events by listening to our chat and by clicking on the photo of Rafa on the sidebar of ParentingAces.com.
