Thanks to the Denver City Open for hosting another exciting tournament. Gates Tennis Center had two pros who reigned supreme this year! Charlie Capp, pictured left, took home the champion trophy for Men's 4.5 Singles. Andy Booth, picture right with partner Tonya Laden, won the title for Mixed 45 Doubles. They might be too humble to brag, so we'll do it for them! Congrats on a tournament well played. Already looking forward to 2018!
Tyler Zappia has worked with Gates and our Multi-Sport program for about 5 years and he's keeping the tradition going by joining us again this summer. He's originally from Dallas, Texas, but spent time playing college tennis in Kansas. Aside from tennis, he also keeps active in his spare time by playing softball and soccer. When questioned about his favorite tennis player, there was no hesitation: "Oh, Fed's the best of all time". If you're considering our Camp, Tyler is the perfect pro to get your kids excited and passionate about sports!
