Kerry Schneider has been working hard the last five months as the new general manager of World Team Tennis' Orange County Breakers.
Schneider, 34, has been working for World Team Tennis for more than eight years, and she still is the director of marketing and sponsorship services for the pro league. But for those last five months she has also embraced her new challenge.
The O.C. Breakers, formerly the Newport Beach Breakers, debut at 7 p.m. Monday night against defending WTT champion Washington. Celebrating their 10th season, the Breakers also have a new venue as they're playing this year at the Bren Events Center on the UC Irvine campus.
Tickets start at $15. The Breakers, who will have marquee player Lindsay Davenport in every home match and are again coached by Trevor Kronemann, have seven home matches through July 28. The rest of the all-new roster includes Travis Parrott, John-Patrick Smith, Anna-Lena Groenefeld and substitute Jana Juricova.
