Historical Information
Dedicated on July 27, 2014, the Alex Rovello Memorial Courts are the result of the efforts of Alex’s parents, Geri and Jim Rovello, who lost their son in a tragic accident in spring 2013. Alex learned to play tennis at the age of two at Berkeley Park. He went on to win four state singles titles, was a member of Cleveland High School’s only state championship team, and was a nationally ranked Junior Player in the USTA as well as an outstanding player at the University of Oregon.

The Rovellos established the Alex Rovello Memorial Fund in honor of their son. The mission of the Fund is to provide a safe and professional environment for children and adults, from all walks of life, to learn and play tennis. The Fund paid for the renovation of the tennis courts at the park, thanks to contributions from nearly 1,400 individuals and organizations.
