Dan Konchan Memorial Junior Open

Dan Konchan was a Central Arizona and Southwest Section ranked junior player from Scottsdale, who was tragically killed in a car accident in 2002 while on his way to school. He was 17 years old.  This tournament has been held in Dan’s memory every year since 2004, with the net proceeds going to the USTA Central Arizona Junior Scholarship Fund.

The Junior Scholarship Fund has helped local juniors in financial need, with travel expenses so that they can compete in tournaments they wouldn't otherwise be able to play. Many juniors have been able to pursue their dream of playing higher level tennis because of opportunities given to them by the Junior Scholarship Fund.

This year we earned close to $3500 for the Junior Scholarship Fund.

The tournament would not have been a success without them!
