Congratulations to UCLA's Mark Otten and Anthony Horsley!  The duo received the 2007 USTA Southern California Tennis On Campus Service Award, and deservedly so.  Otten founded the UC Davis Club Tennis Team while he was an undergrad there and then started to reshaped the recreational tennis scene at UCLA while attending grad school.  Horsley played on his college's varsity tennis team in New York before relocating to sunny California and meeting Otten through the UCLA recreational sports department.  Together, the two have overhauled the tennis scene at UCLA, expanding recreational tennis opportunities from two weekend tournaments with 30 students to an ongoing fall and spring intramural league and a club tennis team with over 200 students!  The UCLA Club Tennis Team is now a four-time USTA Campus Championship - Southern California champion and two-time Top 5 USTA National Campus Championship finisher.
