The city of Camden recently announced it has hired Paola Maoli as facility director of the city’s new tennis center and pickleball plaza in downtown Camden. According to City Manager Mel Pearson, Maoli is a highly experienced professional in tennis management, who most recently served as tennis coordinator with the Cayce Tennis and Fitness Center in Cayce. 

“We are excited to bring Paola Maoli on board to lead our tennis and pickleball operations,” Pearson said. “Her vast experience with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) of South Carolina and associated programs, her strong record of accomplishments in tennis management, tournament recruitment and grant procurement, and her passion for the sport will be a great benefit for our residents and all others who come to play in Camden.”

Born in Rome, Italy, Maoli moved to the United States in 1976 with her family after completing her Juris Doctor degree. She became involved in tennis initially as a player, then later as a promoter, coach and official. For more than 10 years, she has been a certified official and referee for tennis tournaments, and is a professional registry certified coach for 10 and under (10U) juniors. Maoli is one of the first coaches in the South Carolina Midlands area to organize and promote what is now known as a junior tennis team. 

Maoli has worked at the USTA, where she successfully promoted several new programs, and worked for more than five years as tennis coordinator at the Cayce Tennis and Fitness Center before coming to the tennis center in Camden. 

Pearson also said Maoli joined city staff last fall and has been working closely with Public Works Director Tom Couch and City Building Official John Burns on construction to bring the tennis complex to completion. Grand opening ceremonies are tentatively scheduled for March, and statewide USTA tournaments are already booked at the center for 2018 and 2019.
