In the wake of a devastating tornado that tore through the village, leaving the HSV Tennis Center in ruins, the  HSV Tennis Association mobilized a dedicated team of volunteers to spearhead the cleanup efforts.

Dan & Ann Bowholtz, Randy Bruno, Chas Brunk, Sharon Cherrnay, Chris Dern, Jim Dothage, Paul & Laura Hedgpeth, Rick Meyers, and Steve Wright are just a few of the selfless individuals who answered the call for help. Their tireless efforts have been instrumental in clearing debris and restoring the Tennis Center to its former glory.

In addition to these dedicated volunteers, Dominique Kohlenberger, Jim & Karen Roberts, Dave Sparks, and Deby Sweatt have also contributed significantly to the cleanup efforts.

A special acknowledgment is extended to Charlene Reinsch, whose meticulous attention to detail and tireless dedication have been invaluable. Her efforts in removing shattered windshield glass from the parking lot and sweeping the hard courts have expedited the cleanup process and ensured the safety of all involved.
