Valley Vista women third
A group of women from Clubsport Valley Vista in Walnut Creek recently made a mark at the USTA nationals in Surprise, Ariz. Competing in the 55+ age category at the 4.0 level, the group represented Northern California well, taking third place. The Valley Vista women lost in the semifinals to the eventual champions from the Pacific Northwest but secured a third place banner and trophy, now displayed at Clubsport's infamous "Fence of Fame."
