“Denny contacted and guided me through the interview process at the Sterling, IL Park District.  Am so glad he did, because I began working there on November 1, 2017 as Director of Tennis.  I trust him completely.”

“The Sterling Park District had spent about 18 months looking for a full-time Tennis Director with no success.  On August 1, 2017 we engaged the services of Denny Schackter, Tennis Priorities to assist us in this endeavor.  On November 1, 2017 Jake Lipka started his first day at the Sterling Park District, as our Racquet Sports Director/Head Tennis Professional.  Enough said!!!”
