All About the Tournament
Sunland Springs Village has been holding this tennis tournament for about 8 years!
We have 320 members in our club and half of them help in some capacity to pull off our main fundraiser. Community members are working in the kitchen, preparing and serving meals, grilling, selling tickets, selling snacks and ice cream, securing sponsors, scorekeeping, computer input, registering the players, court maintenance, cleanup and other tasks required to help the tournament run smoothly.
We are very fortunate to have the support of the community for the tournament and the meals we serve.
Here’s a little preview of the past few years tennis tournaments here at SSV…
Play is held in 7 levels of ability. Cash prizes and medals are awarded to the champions and runners-up in the championship bracket!
See You There!
The tournament committee is lead by 2 couples as directors, and several committee chairs that meet monthly through out the tennis season.
Thanks again for your support, we appreciate seeing you partaking of our meals and mixing with the public.
Hope to see you there!
