USTA Colorado SERVES Program

Making a Team Agreement

Everyone signs the Agreement 

 

The bitter blizzard didn’t stop new faces coming to the Tennis Center on Sunday, March 4th.  USTA Colorado SERVES, a new tennis program at the Tennis Center, hosted its first Open House.  The Tennis Center is partnering with Partners Mentoring Youth, Boys and Girls Club, and Soda Creek ACE Club for SERVES – a program that teaches kids life lessons and skills on a tennis court, with a focus on under-resourced families.  The first session started March 18th and will occur every Sunday afternoon for six weeks. Many thanks to the Steamboat Tennis Association (STA) and all of our volunteers who came out for our kick-off event. This program was made possible by a grant from USTA Colorado.

For more information on SERVES, please contact loretta@steamboat10s.com or kristyn@steamboat10s.com.

Warren Luce and Valerie Davia Leave a Legacy

Warren Luce and Valerie Davia understand what it means to be leave a lasting impact for their community. Luce, who is retired, has been a Steamboat Tennis Association (STA) board member, and for the past two years, has served as executive director. He is an avid tennis player and gets on the court, along with his wife, a couple of times a week.

So when Luce and his wife recently updated their will, they named the Steamboat Tennis and Pickleball Maintenance Fund.

“Our wills were 20 years old, so we were in the process of updating them,” Luce said. “One of the things we felt strongly about was the endowment fund for the tennis and pickleball centers. The Tennis Center at Steamboat is a fantastic resource, and we enjoy it very much, so we wanted to leave some money behind when we are gone, so the next generation can enjoy it as well.”

Luce and Davia’s philanthropic vision goes beyond the confines of a tennis court. The couple plans to leave a gift to his alma mater the Electrical Engineering Department at California Polytechnic State University. They will also leave some money to the Southern Poverty Law Center and Rails to Trails Conservancy.

“We picked four things that were really important to us both, and the Tennis Center was one of them,” Davia said.

Luce encourages other to think about their legacy and explained, “If you don’t set it into the instructions, the executor of your will not know what you wanted to have happen with your estate.”

Has your legacy been on your mind?
