Among the more than 70 entrants from the Southeast region are past singles champions Rich Silver, a Haig Point member, and Pat Child of Hilton Head Island, who will be entered only in mixed doubles this weekend. Prizes will be awarded for finalists in each divisional category.
“Players will be paired with other players of similar ability,” saidd Haig Point director of tennis Ron Gwyn. “We have six courts and top-notch amenities, so we will certainly offer a quality experience in every way.”
