DSC 0253

The Annual CHS Faculty Tennis Tournament was held Tuesday May17, and it was a lot of fun and action for all involved. 

Coppell ISD Faculty and Staff members teamed up with Coppell HS Tennis players to form doubles teams, and then competed for championships in two brackets.

While fun, it was also very competitive, as Coppell Faculty showed they have played tennis before and still have that athletic and competitive fire. 

General photos of the tournament have been posted to the Photo Galleries of the web site, and additional individual team action photos have been posted to PhotoBucket, as well as to Google Drive.

Thanks to all for an exciting and entertaining event!
