The InnerCity Tennis community mourns the passing of our Chair Emeritus, Skip Gage. This is a tremendous loss for all of us who had the privilege of knowing him and being touched by him. Over the past four decades, he served InnerCity Tennis as a Board Member, Board Chair, and for the past 10 years, Chair Emeritus. His leadership, wisdom, and compassion will be dearly missed.
He was a frequent visitor to our Outreach programs, especially those in North Minneapolis, and it was so rewarding to see his smile as he watched our youngest players learn the game he loved so much. Our InnerCity Tennis family will continue to be guided by his frequent reminder: “It’s all about the kids.”
We will strive to build on Skip’s legacy of serving the underserved and carry forward his positive, indomitable spirit in pursuit of our mission. Gifts to InnerCity Tennis can be made in his memory through the Skip Gage Memorial Fund.
