Annual Thanksgiving Tournament to be Fundraiser for Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey
The 2017 67th Annual Thanksgiving Tournament, hosted by the CCTA, will be held November 17th through 19th at HEB Tennis Center. The tournament is a sanctioned ranking tournament for adult and senior players and a non-ranking tournament for juniors. Registration is open at www.usta.com with the tournament number of 809652117.
This year’s tournament will be held in honor of our many local tennis players who live in the area affected by Hurricane Harvey. Our hearts are heavy for our friends and teammates from Port Aransas, Rockport, Aransas Pass, Woodsboro, Bayside, Sinton, Taft, Gregory-Portland, Refugio and many other sites, but we know the courage and resilience of these communities. To help these communities recover, the CCTA has decided to donate all profits from this tournament to the hurricane relief effort.
We are working on many extra activities to raise money during the tournament and will let you know about all of them over the next month. But in the meantime, sign up for the tournament on line today. Adults levels singles, doubles and mixed doubles, husband-wife, mother-daughter, father-son and junior divisions 10 through 18 years of age are featured. Adult singles is $30 per entry and adult doubles is $23 per player. Registration deadline is November 8th.
Kramer Insurance has generously offered to sponsor the tournament t-shirts and we will be showing those off soon! Join us in being Tennis Strong!
