For the Love of Tennis
Wednesday, April 17, 2013 • Posted April 20, 2013

Dust off your racquet, grab your shoes and join fellow tennis enthusiasts on Saturday, June 15, at the Mason Tennis Center for a fun-filled day of tennis and socializing with players of all ages! The Mason Tennis Association (MTA) is planning an official dedication of the Tennis Pavilion and a Reunion Tennis Tournament for that day.

The dedication ceremony for the Tennis Pavilion is set for 9 a.m. The MTA will be recognizing past and present Mason tennis coaches and honoring the MTA founders’ passion for tennis and vision of its future in Mason by hosting this wonderful event. We remain grateful to these pioneers for their vision and grit. Because of them, we continue to enjoy the game of tennis in a beautiful facility.

There are over 450 former Mason High School tennis players, and MTA is hoping that many of these individuals, as well as current MTA members, will attend the dedication and participate in the Reunion Tournament. The tournament will be a doubles-only format, and no entry fee is required.

Don’t worry if you have not picked up a racquet in years! This special day is to celebrate our love of tennis and to acknowledge those who started what is now a living, enduring legacy of the sport in our community.

The day will conclude with a special awards presentation and hamburger meal for players, families and guests (by donation only). Everyone in the community is invited to attend the dedication ceremony and enjoy watching former players serve aces, hit some lobs, and have lots of fun.

MTA has been working hard to contact all former players. If you would like to participate or need more information, contact Amelia Banner at 347-5040 or email banner4@verizon.net; Dorothy Grote at 347-2240, email dorothygrote@aol.com; or Serena Kerr at (830) 377-4053, email randskerr@hotmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you June 15 for this “smashing” event!
