The Alex Rovello Memorial Fund was founded in 2013 with the hope of establishing a fitting tribute to Alex Rovello, a talented Portland tennis player who was attending the University of Oregon until he suffered a tragic accident in May 2013.
We initially began this project to refurbish the tennis courts at Berkeley Park, but we have expanded out plans. Alex began playing on these courts when he was two years old and continued to practice there with his Cleveland High School tennis team. Our fund works to provide other children and families with similar opportunities to play and grow together in their own neighborhood
The newly renovated Alex Rovello Memorial Tennis Courts at Berkeley Park were officially opened July 27, 2014. Almost 1,400 individuals and families contributed to make these renovations possible at Berkeley Park.
We are grateful to the many families and individuals who have helped us memorialize Alex.
Donations are still being accepted for maintenance of the courts, future upgrades to the park, and programming. Upcoming events will be posted on this website.
