Chris Pappas was a member of the Chagrin Valley Athletic Club
for twenty years. During that time he played for the Club's tennis
team that participated in the Men's Country Club Tennis League.
He served as captain of the CVAC team for several years and then
as commissioner of the league. Chris died December 14, 1997
at the age of 55. The Peckinpaugh's, Terry Wenger and Nick LaRich
were all instrumental starting the tournament. Nick, a close friend
and playing partner of Chris's has sent out an annual letter to tournament
sponsors. A sampling of past years letters can be found here.
