Rita Dotson

Director At Large

Rita is originally from Pensacola and has been teaching tennis for her entire adult life. She is a Certified Teaching Professional (PTR) and USPTA Elite. Prior to teaching, she was a high school tennis athlete, who received a scholarship to play JUCO tennis. She is now returning for her third term on the USTA Florida Board of Directors.  

Currently, he is the Director of Junior Tennis at Roger Scott Tennis Center in Pensacola and the Founder and President of Tennis-4-Everyone, Inc. Rita enjoys serving on the board because it allows her to be more connected with her fellow USTA members, both locally as well as across the country. It is an avenue that enables Rita to give back to the community through the sport of tennis. 

She has been involved in Special Olympics and Junior Team Tennis for several years and was a 2022 USA Games Special Olympics coach for Team Florida. Some of Rita’s hobbies include shell collecting and crafting, reading, and making videos.
