Oroville Tennis Courts Dedicated to

World Champion Senior


Roz King-Bell came back to her hometown where the community recognized her contributions as a world champion senior tennis player. The African American Family and Cultural Center and Wyandotte Academy on Monday recognized the 80-year-old tennis champion at the school where the tennis courts have been renamed and rededicated in her honor. The center helped the school and district renovate the tennis courts last year.


“(We) would like to recognize Roz King-Bell for her outstanding accomplishments in tennis,” the center’s arts and literature coordinator Cissy Smith said. Oroville Vice Mayor Janet Goodson also spoke at the event, praising King-Bell’s accomplishments and her contributions to her hometown.
