Oh and it gets ‘rich’ real quick;
Match Pointe is unique from other facilities in Sioux Falls because memberships are not requiredâ€”
That’s because as I understand it, they couldn’t sell any memberships. I guess the only ones that would be interested were already getting a good deal at the other indoor facility, why move?
The Huethers, the facility’s namesake, are active in the tennis community of Sioux Falls. In February, the Tennis Industry Association named Cindy Huether, the wife of Sioux Falls mayor, Mike Huether, Tennis Advocate of the Year for her equipment donations and work with elementary schools and daycares. The Huethers made significant contributions to the Huether Tennis Center at Augustana College in 2009 and the Huether Family Match Pointe in 2015. The Huether family was also named National Ralph Wescott Family of the Year by the United States Tennis Association (USTA) in 2012.
Many of these accolades come from how much money you front to these organizations. Isn’t it ironic the Huether’s have the kind of financial means that they can travel all over the country and donate money to these organizations then have to beg the city for $500k, then turn around and putÂ their name on the building;
That’s why the Huethers put â€˜family’ in the name of the facility when they got the naming rightsâ€”
Nope, arrogance and ego is what put Mike’s name on the side of that building.
