Town Sponsors Alan Fleming Tournament

The Town of Seabrook Island is sponsoring the Alan Fleming Senior Open Clay Court State Championships which will be held October 5th – 9th at the Seabrook Island Racquet Club for the second year in a row. The Town has contributed five thousand dollars ($5,000) to underwrite the Tournament. Mayor Ron Ciancio explained the reason for the Town support: “First and foremost, the Town of Seabrook Island whole heatedly endorses the tournament’s support of Respite Care of Charleston and that organization’s effort to support the victims of Alzheimer’s disease and their families.  In addition, we are cognizant of the positive economic impact the tournament has had, and will have, on our community.”

In return the Fleming Committee expressed its gratitude for the support of the Town. Susan Leggett, Tournament Chair, declared: “The Alan Fleming Tournament Committee is delighted to have the Town’s continued support of this notable tennis tournament. Their financial sponsorship bolsters the quality of the Tournament and broadens its appeal to players throughout the country.”
