HomeSTA Board Members

The Seattle Tennis Alliance board is made up of elected club members who volunteer their time to guide the club and support the many year round events enjoyed by the club.  Below is a brief bio for each.

President: Steve Andryszewski

Steve is serving his 2nd term as President of the club.  He hails from the Jersey shore and has lived in the Pacific Northwest for more than 17 years.  Over the past 25 years Steve has enjoyed the game of tennis in particular because of the combination of power, finesse, strategy and problem solving he can attempt to apply on the court. Steve is also an avid fan of live theater having been a performer a few years ago in New York City.

The STA is important to Steve because he believes that the club plays an important role in the Seattle GLBT community.  By providing a safe and welcoming atmosphere at events, it allows people to feel included and share the common bond of tennis to meet and enjoy the sport we all love.

Vice President: Marc Delphine

Marc has been a member of the STA for many years and recently was elected to the position of vice president.  Marc is originally from Portland and is proud to be a lifetime resident of the pacific northwest! Marc has played tennis for most of his life and enjoys the sport because of the mental and physical athleticism it requires to excel.  He believes that the individual that works hardest at both components is usually rewarded as the victor!  When not on the court, Marc is a work out and yoga enthusiast.

Marc began volunteering with the STA to be more involved and make the organization more approachable and welcoming.  As a gay man, he believes that the STA is the perfect way to make friends and stay active in the community. 

Secretary: Gary Renville

Gary joined the STA after moving to Seattle from Atlanta in 2016. Though he didn't start playing tennis until his mid-thirties, he has been making up for lost time ever since. His passion for the game has not only shown on the court, but also in his activities off the court.  Gary founded and for three years directed the GLTA Rocky Mountain Open in Denver and served for two years as director of the Atlanta GLTA tournament 'The Peach'. Gary also served a two-year term on the national USTA committee for inclusion and diversity. Despite being a newcomer to Seattle, Gary has jumped right in and is captain of his USTA 3.0 men's team. 

Gary joined the board to help raise the visibility of STA, in hopes of recruiting more active members dedicated to tennis play and friendly competition that is inclusive and supportive of all. 

Tournament Director: Bayu Sudjono

Bayu is from Jakarta, Indonesia and has lived in the Pacific Northwest for the past 9 years.  He's played tennis on and off for the past 15 years.  He enjoys tennis because it's great exercise and he gets to meet other great guys.  When not playing tennis, Bayu enjoys a nice walk, sleeping, and shopping (in that order!).

Bayu joined the STA board because he believes its a great organization, it supports the LGBT community, and as he says, "hey, it's tennis!".  He thinks the STA has a lot of good tennis programs and wants to make sure the organization will be around for the next hundred years or so.

Membership Director: Jason Herrera

Jason moved to Seattle from Petersburg, Alaska in 1999.  He began playing tennis shortly after that and loves the game because it is both an individual and team sport.  He also likes the endurance required to chase balls around the court!  Jason joined the STA board to ensure the club would always be around for people and thought it was his turn to step up and help.  The STA is important to Jason because it helped him through a very difficult time in his life.  When not chasing balls, Jason enjoys reading, writing and video games.

Webmaster: Chris Pouliot

Chris has lived in the Seattle area for more than 16 years.  Originally from southern New Hampshire, Chris began playing tennis at a very young age and played in both high school and college.  He enjoys tennis because of the competition and camaraderie.  When not playing tennis, Chris enjoys spending time on home projects and enjoying fine food and wine.

Chris has been a long time member of the STA, has volunteered as tournament director previously, and is again tournament director for the Seattle Classic 2017. Chris was recently elected to the webmaster post for the STA and looks forward to helping to shape the public look and feel of the club to the community and playing a part in helping the club grow and offer interesting programs to its members.

Director at Large 1: Michael Callangan

Michael arrived on the Seattle scene in 2003 from Mililani, Hawaii.  He's played tennis for more than 20 years and loves the game because of the competition and camaraderie.  

Michael volunteered for the STA board to support the club as it represents values that he believes in.  When not on the court, Michael enjoys travelling and experiencing new cultures.

Director at Large 2: Blaine Inafuku
