Congratulations Tyler!

We’d like to say a big congratulations to Tyler Leaird for representing Golden Ocala proudly at the state closed championship for the best 10 and under players in the state of Florida. This tennis championship was held in Orlando last weekend. Tyler competed against 32 of the state’s best players and finished eighth! Tyler is 9 years old and has been playing tennis here at Golden Ocala for about a year and a half.
