Lynn Gertzog

Program Director – Washington, DC


Lynn is a longtime recreational tennis player and advocate. For more than 10 years, she worked in the community tennis space with the USTA Mid-Atlantic Section, promoting and growing tennis in public parks, schools, clubs, and organizations. Lynn is passionate about tennis as a sport of inclusion and opportunity, and when she became general manager for one of the two indoor public facilities in her own community, she launched an ACEing Autism program that ran 30 weeks of the year for 3 years until she retired from that position. Incidentally, Rachel Bloch was one of that location’s first on-court volunteers, later becoming one of its two lead teaching pros. Lynn is beyond thrilled to support Rachel’s work in this new outdoor location at the Fitzgerald Tennis Center in DC’s Rock Creek Park.
