Coronado Tennis Association’s Crown Cup results

The annual Crown Cup at the Coronado Tennis Center over the Sept. 9-10, 2017 weekend was a great event for the city of Coronado, CTA members and guests. The doubles play was competitive and fun, and the tournament also raised money for upcoming “thank you” dinners in honor of the Coronado Police and Fire Departments.

“The Coronado Tennis Association is very proud to partner with Village Pizzeria (Blue Bridge Hospitality) in donating dinners to our Coronado Police and Fire Departments,” said CTA President Jenni Portelli. “Dinners will be delivered next week to our wonderful first responders.”

Congratulations to all the participating players, especially the champions and finalists.
