There are several tournaments coming up in the months ahead – from a small local New Hampshire event … to a new ITF tournament in Naples … to the World’s in Orlando. Here are some highlights…
The 24th Annual Chargers Tennis Classic will be held on August 4-6 on the Colby-Sawyer college courts + the (senior) soft courts at nearby Lake Sunapee Country Club. If you are in the area and over 60, sign up and join those trying to dethrone Bob Wilkie and me!
