Area Tennis Champions Crowned

June 2019 
Area tennis players competed in the first annual Golden Isles Hardcourt Championships held last weekend at College of Coastal Georgia. Weather interrupted play twice during the two-day event which attracted competitors from an 8-county area surrounding Glynn. In the end, 26 players walked away with championship and finalist trophies.
"The event was an unqualified success," said Tournament Director Patrick Anderson. "Our goal was to build membership in the local USTA organization Brunswick-Golden Isles Tennis Association, and give area tennis players an opportunity to compete for local championships. In the process, we enjoyed the comradery and special friendships we develop playing the sport we love.”

Empty tennis ball cans were saved and donated to Brunswick Women's Club for one of their favorite charities. As it turns out, the empty cans are perfect for packaging sewing kits assembled for under-privileged families in Haiti.

"Special thanks go to Zack Rogers, tennis coach at College of Coastal Georgia for allowing use of the Marta B. Torrey Tennis Complex," said Anderson.
