Sara Downie

Assistant Tennis Professional

Sara was born and raised in eastern Oregon and moved to Roseburg with her husband Barry in 2008. Sara has a Master’s Degree in Education and has taught kindergarten through fifth grade.

Tennis became a love of Sara’s after her two children started playing. Once she started playing, she couldn’t get enough time on the court. She continued to work on her own skills and then began helping with the youth programs at UVTC.

Sara is thrilled that she can bring her love of teaching together with her excitement for tennis each day. She loves seeing the growth kids make and is grateful that she gets to be a part of their journey.

Tennis is a wonderful way for families to get out and spend time together, and she loves that this is something her husband Barry and she can do with their two children Cade and McKinley.
