2011 City Tournament Director
AAACTA is delighted to announce that Helen Giordani is adding another tennis activity to her resume - 2011 City Tournament Director.
A friendly and familiar face to players all over town, Helen played doubles at Huron High, and has taught tennis at Racquet Club for 10 summers. She's been site director for the Joe Morris and Ann Arbor Junior Open tournaments for almost as long. Helen is currently running the gym tennis programs for Rec & Ed.
In '07 there was a Giordani moment at the City Tournament - Helen and her mother played doubles on a court right next to her competing father and brother. Did she suspect then that one day she would be leading the organization of the entire event?!
