Guam National Tennis Federation President Dies


Guam – Guam has lost another major contributor and shaper of sports on the island.

Last night Guam National Tennis Federation President and National Tennis Team member Bill Camacho suffered a heart a attack and died.  He was 46 years old.

Camacho’s contributions to the tennis community will never be forgotten.  He was either a tournament director or organizer and was instrumental in making the Guam Futures tournament a reality and, most recently, the Davis Cup held 2 weeks ago.  

Bill has been the President of the G.N.T.F. since 2008 and returned to the island in 2005 after having played for Hawaii Pacific University and the University of Hawaii.  Since his return Camacho became a part of the Guam National Tennis Team and represented Guam in the 2006 Micro Games, 2007 Pacific Games, 2009 East Asian Games and 2010 MIcro Games gold medalist in the team event.

The island has benefitted greatly from Bill’s efforts thanks to his passion for the sport and his commitment to keep moving Guam tennis forward.
