SCCF to stage 18th Annual Tennis Tournament

By Staff | Mar 1, 2010

Don’t miss SCCF’s 18th Annual Tennis Tournament, scheduled to take place at The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club on Saturday and Sunday, March 13-14.

One of the island’s premier tennis tournaments, the format is doubles team competition with first round consolation and winners advance to finals. The categories are Men’s, Women’s and Mixed Doubles.

All league players will compete at team level of the highest-ranked partner. Non-league players will be placed at USTA rating and/or at the discretion of the Dunes Director of Tennis Operations. If three or fewer teams enter a category, they will be placed with the nearest appropriate category and will play a “double elimination” round.

Winners and consolation players will each receive an etched wine glass created by island artist, Luc Century. There will be a Silent Auction, with auction items on display at the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation (3333 San-Cap Road) on Friday evening and at The Dunes (949 Sandcastle Road) over the weekend.

The opening reception will be at SCCF on Friday, March 12. A continental breakfast for players will be available Saturday and Sunday, along with lunch both days.

The deadline for entries is Wednesday, March 11.
