Optimist Tennis Classic Update

Although the weather was not conducive for outdoor tennis last weekend, our club’s annual tennis classic finished outside at the Harper Creek High School tennis complex under sunny skies on Sunday afternoon. We would like to thank Mark Harvey, owner of the Minges Creek Athletic Facility, for offering our club the use of his courts during the raining early Friday afternoon and all-day Saturday downpour. Participation for the event was again rather anemic in regards to youth sign-ups (not sure why), but adult involvement was great. Two youth singles tournaments and three adult doubles tournaments provided for some great competitive tennis.

With 6 local businesses assisting financially, the event actually generated some funds for our club to channel back into the community with respect to other avenues supporting the youth of our community. Supporting our club with sponsorship for the event were the following: Ray Yager Fitness, Minges Creek Athletic Club, SunShine Toyota, Myers Chiropractic, Groundwater Associates, and Dr. Craig A. Miller. Also, special thanks to Ridgeway Sports Apparel for timely designing and supplying the commemorative tennis shirts.
