WINTERGREEN, Va. (Nov. 1, 2011) – Jonathan Sarosiek, a full-time member of the Wintergreen Resort tennis staff for the past six years, has been named director of tennis, overseeing a facility singled out as one of the nation’s top 50 tennis resorts in the country by both Tennis magazine and Tennis Resorts Online.

During his tenure at Wintergreen, Sarosiek has served as assistant director of tennis, director of the Wintergreen Tennis Academy and head professional at the resort’s Stoney Creek facility.  He has been an integral leader of the teaching staff that has been ranked as high as second in the nation.

“I am fortunate to be surrounded by a wonderful staff at Wintergreen Resort, and it is the entire team here that makes this an award winning facility,” Sarosiek said.  “We take great pride in providing a first-class level of service for our guests, and continue to aspire to reach new heights in securing our reputation as one of the country’s top tennis resorts.”

A native of Appleton, Wisc., Sarosiek currently resides in Crozet, Va.

Wintergreen Resort has 22 tennis courts, with facilities located atop the mountain at Devil’s Knob and in the valley at Stoney Creek.  The resort’s 19 outdoor clay courts provide exquisite natural surroundings – the beauty of Central Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, with stunning views and refreshing mountain breezes. Three indoor deco-turf courts offer guests the ability to play tennis year round.
