The History of Our Logo

Our logo has been carried down from generation to generation. Dan’s father first used this logo during his
high school coaching career from 1972-1990. We hired Charlie Warner (USPATA Professional) to revise it a bit in 1998 and we have had it ever since!

If you can’t figure it out - it is supposed to be Dan with all his big red hair competing on the court!


To Our Members: Our quest is to have an atmosphere that enhances learning, play, and fun through quality tennis management and instruction. We intend to cater to all levels and ages, integrate tennis into a way of life and give people an opportunity to discover a healthy lifestyle through their involvement with Emmo Tennis!
