The Macomb Area Community Tennis Association is holding a Tennis Social on August 31 at 6 – 8 p.m. to welcome Western Illinois U. first-year head coach Chris Kane. The event will be held on the WIU tennis courts. It will also double as a celebration of the Macomb Area Community Tennis Association being recognized as part of the United States Tennis Association (USTA). The event is open to the public.
Kane’s tennis reputation encompasses more than a successful coaching career. A former top-ranked player in the USTA Midwest and New England Sections, Kane has ranked among the ‘Top 15′ nationally in both the junior and senior divisions. He has captured 15 state and three United States tennis championships throughout his career. He will be on hand to meet fans and area tennis players.
A prize court will be giving away free items to those who show off their tennis skills. Snacks and beverages will also be served. The Macomb area USTA representative, Bret Schrama, will also be speaking on the importance of a community tennis association.
