USTA Eastern will conclude the year at its Annual Conference from January 27-29 at the Renaissance Hotel in White Plains, where it will honor and celebrate the people who have had an impact on our tennis community.

Among those who will be honored are several Long Islanders, both juniors and adults, for the work and dedication they have shown.

One of those Long Islanders is Randi Wilkins, of Poquott, who will be honored with the Regional Volunteer of the Year for the Long Island Region.

Wilkins serves on the USTA Long Island Region Board as the Suffolk County Community Development Chair. Her accomplishments include bringing tennis to children in Suffolk County and launching the USTA LI Region Kids’ Day in Suffolk in 2015. That event, which was successful in its first year despite a major storm downing trees and electrical lines the night before, was even more successful in its second year, with over 150 children attending. Wilkins is a tireless volunteer who always helps at Long Island Region events and programs.
