Both squads were on had for a unique event at Denver Tennis Park to help win the war against leukemia and lymphoma. LGDU’s Jason Evans was there.
Both the men’s and women’s tennis teams are off until the end of the month but that doesn’t mean they won’t be getting the racquets out.
This Saturday from 12pm to 2pm the Pioneers will be on hand for a unique event at Denver Tennis Park. They’ll be helping out in a charity event that will include instruction, mixed doubles matches and other fun activities for the public.

The Saturday organizers are requesting a minimum donation Saturday of $75 per participant. Continue reading #BringTheRacquet: Men’s, women’s tennis teams in Saturday event to fight cancer
