Culver City Tennis Pro Wins Western State Titles
August 17, 2017
Former professional touring tennis player Rollin Rhone of Culver City won senior tournaments last month in the three western states without losing a set in the finals. The seventh-ranked player in the nation in the 60’s age bracket took titles in the Oregon State, Washington State and Southern California Sectional Championships against players from around the country. To win in every state at this level on the west coast was quite an honor, said Rhone, a former ATP touring competitor who has coached tennis in Southern California since the 1980's. He soon will play in the Nationals in Seattle in singles, doubles and mixed doubles. Rollin is often seen on local courts working with players of all abilities. I enjoy sharing my sports knowledge to the community on all levels. My students learn how to play the ball, put points together and have more fun, said Rhone who can be reached at 310-948-0580. Rhone’s wife, Shari, is a physical education specialist at Farragut Elementary School. Caption TENNIS-Former ATP proRollin Rhone of Culver City slices a backhand shot.
