Director of Racquets / Director of Tennis

At GSI Executive Search, our racquets / tennis experience is enhanced by the presence of two top racquets industry veterans, Senior Principal Scott McNett and Andrew Minnelli, USPTA, PTR, USRSA.

Scott has an extensive and lifelong history in the game of tennis. Scott played tennis in high school and college and owned and operated a leading indoor tennis club in St. Louis for 10 years—South Hampshire Racquet Club. During that time, he served as a board member of the St. Louis District of the United States Tennis Association (USTA) for three years. He has also continued to be involved in tennis by serving actively on Tennis Committees for two private clubs as a member. Finally, he is currently one of the owners of Frontenac Racquet Club in St. Louis, one of the leading indoor tennis clubs in the Midwest.

In his 20-plus years in the business, Andrew has effectively collaborated with private club boards, committees, members and staff to implement award-winning and innovative racquet programs and tournaments at some of the world’s most historic and iconic clubs.

GSI has been fortunate to have served several clubs nationally in their searches for Directors of Racquets, Directors of Tennis, as well as Athletic Directors, and Sports and Fitness Directors.
