We will not continue regular operations in 2015
Since the beginning of Gateway in the 1990’s, we operated with supporting funding from local indoor tennis clubs with the goal of promoting social tennis in St. Louis.
Our founding executive director, Bill Walsh, volunteered his time to build our group and, for the last five years, our organization was run by an all-volunteer board,including the most recent board members Jim McQuie, Diana Kennedy, John Galatoire, Colleen Jaycox Mann, Bob Rugraff and Patricio Gonzalez.
Together with our nearly 200 annual members, we have had a great time playing outdoor team tennis in the summer and indoor doubles during the cooler months, with clinics and parties in between.
Starting in 2015, the indoor tour club owners asked us to become financially self-sufficient. We asked our members for input, and after hearing what you had to say, made the difficult decision to not continue our regular operations.
If things change in the future, we'll be sure to let our members know. But for now, you can continue to interact with other Gateway Tennis players on our Facebook page
