Palmetto Dunes Tennis Resort, Hilton Head, SC
March 16-18, 2018
You are cordially invited to the 25th Annual Southern Tennis Escape Invitational Tournament to be held March 16-18, 2018, at the beautiful Palmetto Dunes Tennis Resort.
Open to all skill levels, the tournament format will be doubles and mixed doubles*. Players may enter up to two events. If any one level does not have enough participants to make a draw, it may be moved to the next highest level OR a singles draw may be created. You are guaranteed a minimum of two matches in each event.
Please note – This is a three-day tournament with finals on Sunday. Early departures not only affect the tournament schedule, it affects other players. If you cannot commit to all three days, you are welcome to come as a spectator.
Practice courts will be available at the facility on March 15 after 1:00 p.m. Play will begin Friday, March 16 at 8:00 a.m. Draws will be posted by Thursday afternoon. Most matches will be played on clay courts however Amelia Island also has hard courts so your match could be on either surface. If inclement weather occurs, the scoring system may change to accommodate matches. Proper tennis attire is required. A full consolation round will be included as court time permits.
A buffet lunch will be served on-site. Meals are included for players. If you are bringing a guest and didn’t already register them, please contact Michael ASAP to register them. More details will be provided at a later date regarding the Friday night event. All we can say is that kegs of beer and boxed wine (the good kind) will be involved!
