The McPherson Advantage Junior Tennis Club has been selected by the USTA Missouri Valley Awards Committee as the recipient of the 2017 award for Outstanding Community Tennis Association.
The Advantage was picked over other organizations from a five-state area.
According to Advantage spokesperson Janie Bremyer, the Advantage has been chosen the Community Tennis Association of the Year for both the Kansas District and the entire Missouri Valley Section, which includes Oklahoma, Nebraska, Missouri, Heart of America (KC area), St Louis and Missouri.
“This is truly a body of work, which extends through 23 years of our existence and a great honor,” Bremyer said. “So the award really goes to the members, all the volunteers and the teachers who have made this club great since 1995.”
Bremyer will be on hand to accept the award Dec. 2 in Kansas City at the Missouri Valley annual meeting.
