Egdes Serves Up Tennis Post

The Tennis Channel brought longtime industry executive David Egdes into its court.

Egdes, who has been serving the past five years as vice president of World Team Tennis, will become the network’s vice president, tennis-industry relations, as well as tournament director of the Tennis Channel Open.

Based in Los Angeles, Edges -- whose resume also includes a 10-year stint as an executive and agent at IMG -- will report directly to Tennis Channel chairman and CEO Ken Solomon.

In his new post, Edges will guide the tennis-industry-relations department and act as a liaison between the network and players, agents, tournament directors, associations, governing bodies, clubs, sponsors, manufacturers and retailers.

As tournament director for the network’s Panasonic Presents the Tennis Channel Open, he will oversee all aspects of the annual February event in Las Vegas.
