2019 Board Member, Pete Rose (Vice President)

Board Member Pete Rose

Pete was introduced to platform tennis in 2006 by a savvy paddle veteran looking for a “ringer.” He became hooked on paddle, finding it was a lot more fun than tennis, and had a great social dynamic associated with it. His participation continued to grow as he played in the Chicago Platform Tennis Charities League and grew into a tournament player.

Pete has served in various paddle capacities as a member of Glen View Club, President of Region V, Chair of the APTA Player’s Committee, active Board Member, and coVice President. Pete is most proud of his work advancing a National Rating system for platform tennis and developing a Team Nationals format for all APTA members.

Born and raised in the Chicago area, Pete was a four-year tennis letter winner and captain at the University of Iowa. He currently lives in Winnetka and has four young children (William 8, Emma 7, Eleanor 5, Robert 2) and a remarkable and paddle-supportive wife, Emily. Pete is involved in a family business that produces a variety of value-added proteins for customers throughout the world.
