About Impact Activities
Impact Activities was established in 2011. With the first facility being The Courts of McKinney, Tx. (www.mckinneytennis.org). This new 11 court facility added 12 more courts in 2019 making it the largest outdoor tennis facility in the region. In 2015 Impact acquired contracts with the City of Fort Worth (McLeland Tennis Center www.mclelandtennis.org, 16 courts with 2 climate controlled indoor courts) and in 2018 with the City of Dallas (Fretz Tennis Center www.fretztennis.org, 15 outdoor courts), Samuell Grand Tennis Center (18 courts), L.B. Houston Tennis Center (16 courts), and two facilities in 2019 with the City of Wichita Falls- Hamilton Park Tennis Center (12 courts) and Weeks Park Tennis Center (9 courts). In 2020 Impact invested in adding Pickleball court to all of the facilities.
Matt Hanlin is widely regarded as an expert in his field by his peers. As a player he was the former practice partner to Serena and Venus Williams, an All-American at the University of Washington, the Schools winningest player of all time, and a top #400 ATP world player.
His directing and managing experience was honed through mostly municipal tennis facilities. Matt has been a guest speaker at the Texas Recreation and Parks Society annual conference, the USTA annual Texas conference, and the Dallas Professional Tennis Association annual coaches workshop. He has also been an advisory staff member for both Head and Wilson racket companies and a liaison for the USTA during their national convention and a nationally selected "Mentor" for their inaugural mentorship program in 2019. After serving on the board for several years, in 2016 Matt was elected as the President of the Dallas Professional Tennis Association, a non-profit org. dedicated to growing tennis throughout Dallas.
In 2012 Impact Activities received several national accolades including 2012 USTA Outstanding facility award and 2012 USTA no 1.
