I was privileged as a young man to live one mile from the site of the US Open Clay Court Championships. I was inspired by the action on the courts, and impressed by the ferocity of the men's game up close!
I played varsity level tennis in high school, and won my school's tournament my junior and senior years. I became a tennis instructor for the Indianapolis Parks Department during summer breaks, but then hung up my racquet at age-22 to begin a career in air traffic control.
Twenty years later, I picked up a racquet again to play my coworkers at the airport control tower where I worked. Everyone enjoyed the camaraderie, and exercise Tennis-Tuesdays provided. We began a tournament, which has grown, evolved, and continues to provide fun, exercise, and an avenue to meet the broader tennis community.
