Sterling Oaks has been the home of a well-run CAT II tournament over the last few years; but is bowing out for 2018. My understanding is that Sanchez-Casal is interested in taking over that slot; but that would leave one opening for the Naples-Ft. Myers series.
Where To Go?
A couple of local clubs have been approached but so far there are no takers. Do you know an area club that might be interested in hosting a “regular” USTA senior’s tournament (probably the week of January 29th)?
There are visitors who come to SW Florida and rent for one month to play in the Florida Super Senior Grand Prix series.
So looking at the calendar and considering the one month renters, maybe best to have the Sanchez-Casal CAT II the week of Jan 22nd (when I assume their regular tournament slot is) and if another comes through, have that the following week (which spills into February)?
Or is it better to just have three in the Naples-Ft. Myers area and have that slot be a “bye week”?
Or if Sanchez-Casal was willing to host TWO tournaments is that better than none?
What are your thoughts and suggestions on all this?
