Karen S. Niemants Social Tennis Event – Sept. 18, 2010

announcement Karen S. Niemants Social Tennis Event   Sept. 18, 2010The Karen S. Niemants Tennis Social event is scheduled for September 18th at the Koch Family Tennis Center in Omaha. Karen was a great supporter of tennis in Nebraska. This is an event held in her honor and has a side effect of being a fund raiser to put up lights at the Koch Tennis Center. However, that is a side effect only. The important part of this event is remembering Karen and to be a social tennis event near the end of the USTA League and Tournament Season. Competitive tennis is great, but it is also nice to have fun with tennis.

There is a Quickstart Program, as well as Mixed Doubles where you sign up with a partner. There is a flat entry rate, which allows you to play as many events as you want.
