Draws are set for Girls National
The Evansville Tennis Center is hosting its second Junior National Tournament of the year this weekend. Girls from all over the country are traveling to Evansville to compete for three days. The tournament is scheduled to be played outside at Wesselman Park, starting Saturday March 25th. The day will begin at 8:00am with doubles, followed by singles. In the case of inclement weather the tournament will be moved indoors at ETC. With most of the competitors traveling from nearby Midwest states, we have several from outside the area. Players from California, North Carolina, South Carolina, New Jersey and Massachusetts will also be playing.
Both Chase Boyer and Rupa Ponna, who train at the Evansville Tennis Center as part of the Academy, represent the only local players in the draw. Boyer and her doubles partner, Lauren Hatfield are seeded third in doubles and are schedule to start at 8:00am on Saturday. Ponna and her partner, Avyln Smith are scheduled to play at 9:00am. Ponna is scheduled to play singles at 12:30 and Boyer at 1:00pm Saturday.
In the case of inclement weather, play will be suspended and moved indoors to be resumed at 10:00am.
We are excited to host this event, as it is a great way to showcase our facility and its members, the city of Evansville, and to provide an opportunity for our local standouts to play at home. We encourage everyone to stop by this weekend and watch these young girls battle it out!
