Doug Bentley with the KCC Compton Cup Tennis Tournament
“… Chase played our tournament last year as a 13 year old and won several events. As reflected above he continues to improve his tennis skills. He has very solid tennis basics, sound fundamentals, and a great attitude. As a coach I can see college tennis scholarships offers in his future if he continues to play.”
“… We had 66 entries, the largest for us, we completed it a three day period, no rain delays thankfully. We had a great group of KIDS and adults. One girl asked me, “Can we do this every weekend?” We are very appreciative of all the people that support our tournament.”
