Ready, Set, Gold! congratulates Chuck Nelson, who recently won both the singles and doubles titles at the National Seniors Hard Court Tennis Championships held at the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club.
The tournament features the top senior players from across the United States, ages 50 to 90+. Chuck competed in the 85’s age group division.
“Just getting to 85 is an achievement, and being able to compete at a national and world level at this age just adds to the fun,” he said.
Chuck was a member of the 1964 U.S. Olympic volleyball team that competed in Tokyo, and he later served in the Air Force as a jet fighter pilot.
Chuck has been a valued member of the RSG! team for the past eleven years, mentoring youngsters at Loyola Village Elementary in Brentwood about health and fitness.
Way to go, Chuck!
