Mary Norwood Rompf is one of the most distinguished and accomplished tennis players to come out of Oklahoma. She was ranked #1 in both singles and doubles in both Oklahoma and the Missouri Valley section throughout her junior career. Undefeated in 4 years of High School play for Bishop McGinnis HS (never losing even a set), she was a four time State High School Champion.
Mary received an athletic scholarship to the University of Southern California where she was a 4 time all American and won the NCAA National Team Championships 1985. She turned professional in 1988 and competed in the main draw of the French, Wimbledon & US Open Championship.
After retiring from the professional circuit, Mary enjoyed a distinguished doubles career with her daughter Mary Ann, ranking #1 in 2015.
Mary has had an illustrious coaching career as well. She worked at the Nick Bolletteiri Tennis Academy in Florida and was the Head Professional at the International Tennis Hall of Fame. In 2011 she was named USPTA New England Pro of the Year.
In her free time, you will find Mary listening to “the best music ever made” from the 1980’s. Mary brings an upbeat, playful attitude to the court and her Social Mixers are always a fun time at the Birch.
