Letter: Support indoor tennis
Many thanks to the generous volunteers and donors who are making a spectacular impact in bringing year-round tennis to the valley. A new facility in El Jebel will include after-school programs and youth tennis events, and its indoor courts will provide midvalley high schools a place for girls and boys teams to practice and play. Of course, the facility also will welcome adult play and tournaments. The nonprofit Advantage Indoor Tennis group already has raised about half the $1.1 million needed to build the facility. The Crown Mountain Park District will provide operating funds, and no taxpayer money is involved or will be sought. Valley residents are invited to a fundraiser, generously hosted by Portfolio Aspen Properties and sponsored by several local companies, to be held at the St. Regis Hotel from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on June 30. Individual tickets for $75 or two for $100 can be purchased at the door or at http://www.indoortennisevent.com. All donations are welcome, are tax-deductible and will help support a great cause.
