Membership Director – Belinda Macek (belinda@theoakbridgeclub.com)

Originally from Vienna, Austria, Belinda happily traded her ski boots and the Alps for flip-flops on the beach here in Ponte Vedra Beach. She joins us from the USTA Florida Section office, where she promoted tennis through PE and after school programs, fundraising for and administration of grants, and event and tournament planning — her favorites are the Delray Beach Open and Miami Open. She volunteered for a community tennis organization in Flagler County, chaired tennis fundraisers, captained teams, and belonged to several area clubs. An active tennis player herself, she is “Nordstrom trained” and possesses a broad understanding of club dynamics, programming, and member relations. She feels extremely fortunate to be a part of the new Oak Bridge Club team!
