Tennis tournament a success


The annual Tahoe Tennis Classic isn’t just about the play on the courts. The 33-year-old tournament is also the major fundraiser for the Zephyr Cove Tennis Club Foundation.

The nonprofit, all-volunteer organization has the responsibility of running the six courts at the Douglas County facility. With the support of Lake Tahoe and regional businesses, we were able to raise funds to offer free junior instruction and to resurface the entire facility.

We would like to thank everyone who made the July tournament a success. We set a record for the number of teams — 124. The 184 players from nine states ranged in age from 12-81.

A special thank you to Harveys for the delicious dinner enjoyed by 200 people.
