Elwell Resigns from Jayhawk Tennis Facility to Pursue Career in Finance

Sept. 9, 2010

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Scott Elwell, manager of the Jayhawk Tennis Facility for three and a half years, has announced his resignation.

In a letter to members, Elwell said his decision to leave is based strictly on personal reasons. “I graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in finance, and will be pursuing a career in that field,” Elwell said. “My destination is Denver, and I will be moving there when the transition into new management is fully settled. I will take my passion for tennis with me, and look forward to getting back into competitive play.”

Elwell has helped the tennis facility grow from a three-court, indoor location to an eleven-court, indoor and outdoor premier tennis facility. Kansas Athletics purchased the facility, then called First Serve Tennis, last February from its owner and founder, Elwell’s father Mike.

“Scott has been an integral part of the growth of this outstanding facility,” said KU Interim Athletics Director Sean Lester. “We appreciate all he has done, not only for the facility, but also for the tennis community at KU and around the area. We wish him the very best as he begins this exciting new chapter of his life.”
