For love of the game

RANCHO SANTA FE – Helping to raise funds for a special tennis center in Tecate, Mexico – that was the reason for gathering at the residence of Sarah and John Cox on Sept. 6. 

With funds raised from a silent auction, the proceeds would go to the Sean Eduardo Sanchez Center. The center, founded by Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa’s head tennis professional Eduardo I. Sanchez, is the first two public tennis courts in Tecate.

Named after Sanchez’s late son Sean, he has created a program to provide free tennis instruction, equipment, transportation to tournaments and academic scholarships for the kids enrolled.
