Perry LeGaux was “bitten by the tennis bug” in 2012. Before that, while living in Greensboro, Perry worked full time in the health field and volunteered for her daughters' soccer and theater organizations. Then, after 22 years, she and her husband relocated to Miami.
Once in Miami, Perry decided “to do something new" just for herself. So naturally, Perry enrolled in a tennis class at a Miami community college and immediately became addicted. No doubt, her newfound LOVE for tennis led to recruiting her husband, Elden, into tennis too!
“My husband took up tennis too and now we both play in numerous leagues separately or together as a team.”
In September 2020, Perry and Elden moved back to North Carolina. The pandemic forced a lifestyle change, and they moved to Raleigh to be closer to family.
“A main goal once settled in our new home was to find a way to maintain our tennis habit. The Raleigh Tennis Association was a great way for us to get involved with the community and to find information about tennis clubs, instructional lessons and league teams.”
The couple quickly made friends, and they love the new experiences that playing tennis in North Carolina has offered. On any given day, you can find them both on the courts, often enjoying a game of mixed doubles. Now, Perry looks forward to also being involved off the court serving as RTA’s new Growth Development Coordinator.
Perry is passionate about introducing the sport to new players and excited about working in her new role with RTA.
“I hope that I can now be the "bug" to "bite" others and help them to find the fun and benefits of playing tennis.” The RTA is so excited to have Perry part of the team!
Perry's favorite quote is one that we all can live by: “Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier” - Mother Teresa
Welcome, Perry! We know great things are ahead for the Raleigh Tennis Community!
