DELHI, N.Y. (August 8, 2019) – The SUNY Delhi Athletics Department is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Birman as the Broncos' Men's and Women's Tennis Head Coach for the 2019-20 season. A certified tennis professional and instructor, Birman takes the top rank for both programs after serving as the women's tennis assistant coach in the fall of 2018. His experience and knowledge of the game will serve as an important guide for both teams as SUNY Delhi enters year two of its NCAA Division III provisional membership.
The Broncos women's tennis team begins their membership with the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) this fall. The men's tennis team will play their second season in the NAC this spring after reaching the conference finals last year.
Birman holds certifications from the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) and the United State Tennis Association (USTA). A former litigator in New York City, the sport of tennis has never escaped the eye of Birman. He currently is the Director at Tennis Everyone in Halcott Center, N.Y., which specializes in the development of tennis players at all levels and ages. As an amateur professional, Birman was ranked as high as 14th in the United States Eastern Section.
Birman was also the past President of the Central Catskill Chamber of Commerce. He hosts his own radio show on WIOX, based out of Roxbury, N.Y. He is also a United States Ski certified alpine race coach and official.
Students interested in competing for the women's and men's tennis teams this season may contact Coach Birman by phone at (917) 536-0914 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
