PTR hosted the PTR Foundation’s Learn with Legends virtual conference led by the distinguished International Master Pros. Proceeds from the conference were donated to the foundation. The IMP speakers, Kirk Anderson, Tina Tharp, Rodney Harmon, Doug Cash, Mike Barrell, Wayne Elderton, Jorge Capestany, and Donato Campagnoli, helped raise $2,679 for the foundation. The topics were informative; presentations were structured and engaging; the visual aids were effective and best of all they are great storytellers. The audiences had fun exchanging chat messages with the speakers and the fellow audience. Speakers – Thank you for your time, dedication, sharing your expertise and more importantly helping propel the Foundation’s mission. PTR Staff – A big thank you for organizing this successful event.

Conference attendees Your support and participation meant the world to us. Hope you enjoyed it and gained valuable insights from the event. Some of you donated more than the event ticket price – we are grateful! Please send us your comments and suggestions to We are planning to make our next virtual event live via Zoom. We hope to see you in our future events!

He realized his largest dreams, advanced the sport surpassingly and ultimately made tennis much more accessible than it ever would have been without him.”
