Happy Holidays from Harvard Tennis!

Dear Harvard Tennis Family,

All of us at Harvard Tennis would like to wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season!  There has been so much to be thankful for in 2014 that our cup runneth over (including a Harvard football win over Yale).   We have a great team full of young men of character, the best alums on the planet, and a not-too-shabby University that supports athletics.  Dave and I feel blessed to work here and and we hope to see many of you in 2015 at our matches in Cambridge or on the road (Berkeley Jan. 23-24, Northwestern Feb 7-8, San Diego 26-28).
We've also included a photo from the recent ITA Convention in Naples where Harvard stole the show.  Dave Fish '72 won the ITA Meritorious Service Award Winner for his lifetime contributions to college tennis.  Claire Roth '74 took home the ITA Collegiate Volunteer of the Year while Dave Benjamin '66 (who did play for Barnaby and is a Crimson despite all his years with the Tigers) announced his upcoming retirement as president of the ITA at the end of this year.  Eric Butorac (our former volunteer and adopted Crimson) was the keynote speaker at the Convention and kept everyone in stitches with his story of climbing the ranks of the ATP tour.  Click here for the rest of the story.   

If you want to support Harvard Tennis before the end of the calendar year - you can give online.  Just select the "Varsity Sports" in the athletics designation button and then scroll down to "Tennis." 

With love,

Andrew and Dave
