A TRIBUTE TO DON NEU by Al Wagner
Don Neu was a standout supporter of tennis in the Sun Lakes Community. For over two decades he provided free tennis lessons on Monday and Tuesday Evenings for anyone who wanted to improve or begin the sport. Don, a great supporter of the Bradshaw Tournament, served as tournament director for that tournament for many years. If you played tennis and the net was adjusted to the correct height, it was likely Don who adjusted the net. If you played and there was a decent net, Don was the one who removed the worn net and replaced it with a new one. If you were using the ball machine, it was Don who kept it filled with decent balls. If the ball machine did not jam, it was Don who sanded the wheels that propelled the balls, and kept it running. If you looked at a scoreboard it was likely Don who built it. If you sat in the shade on court number one, it was Don who built the shade structure. Don was a good tennis partner and a good tennis opponent. It was my privilege to know and work and teach and learn with Don Neu. Although he is no longer with us, I think we all understand how the tennis community has benefitted from his work. I will miss him, but remember him warmly.
We'll miss you Don !
