Webmaster: Kelly Bryant
Kelly moved to Washington State from Indiana at the age of 4, and grew up in the Seattle suburb of White Center (aka Rat City). His love for the game of tennis began on July 5th, 1980, at the age of 10, while watching the greatest tennis match and rivalry of the 20th Century, the 1980 Wimbledon Men’s Singles Final: Bjorn Borg vs John McEnroe.
Kelly played varsity tennis for 3 1/2 years in high school until a motorcycle accident ended his senior season. Immediately after graduation, he left for a life at sea in the U.S. Navy to follow in his dad’s footsteps, and was chosen to play for the Navy’s “Mobile Magazine” soccer team.
Kelly recently joined back up with the STA, after almost 10 years absence, playing with the men’s Summer Social Doubles group as a way of reconnecting with my LGBTQ Community and those with the similar love of tennis.
