USTA National GF/GS Doubles Champs

The USTA National Grandfather/Grandson Hard Court Doubles Championships concluded on Sunday at the beautiful La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club in La Jolla, California. The third-seeded team of Chase Helpingstine (San Francisco, CA) and Ronald Keiger (Wilmington, NC), teamed up for a 6-0, 6-0 victory over the unseeded team of Bob Hoffman (West Hempstead, NY) and Christopher Schwab (Massapequa, NY).

Ron (Left) is a lifelong North Carolina tennis player who still competes in USTA League events. Chase (Right) was a standout North Carolina junior who played at Chapel Hill High School  before playing college tennis at Elon University.  

We would like to congratulate both Ron Keiger and his Grandson Chase Helpingstine on this amazing accomplishment! Both of you keep up the great work!
