Thank you to all of the participants, spectators, volunteers, referees, tennis center staff, Java Sushi, Truckee High School Boys Tennis Team. We received almost $800 in donations to the assorted scholarships, charities and teams that we supported during the event. We appreciate all of the support and most importantly all of the participation and positive energy that you all had this past weekend. What a pleasure it was for us at the Tahoe Donner Tennis Center to host such a great group of competitors and we look forward to seeing many of you again at the Senior Tournament here in late September (35+ age groups) and next year at our June and August NTRP events.
Thank you again.
