By now, many of you may have heard about the passing of George Nelson, former Evanston Community Tennis Association president. George was a longtime ECTA board member who ran many events for our organization and had a passion for the sport, competing in local leagues for years. He will be missed.

George’s family will hold a memorial service for him on January 4 at 1 p.m. at Unitarian Church of Evanston—we hope you will join ECTA board members there. Per George’s obituary, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to Orphans of the Storm.

Following the memorial, the ECTA will host its annual Winter Doubles Scramble. We can think of nothing more fitting than to play tennis on a day dedicated to George.
