In The De Pere tennis program began in 1980 at Legion Park. We enjoyed almost immediate success, as many players had earlier experience with lessons and summer tournament play.Mary Zegers was the first De Pere player to qualify for the WIAA i ndividual state tournament, soon to be followed by John Zellner, Pat McNamara, Jay Schumerth and John Hanley. Since then, De Pere Tennis has proudly had more than 55 girls and 54 boys qualify for the WIAA tennis tournament.
After more than 15 years of coaching De Pere Tennis, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you the players, their families, the De Pere school District, and all of our community sponsors who have helped us build the strong program that we have today. Your support has been instrumental in our continued growth.
