Alan Fleming Tennis Tournament
October 5 – 9, 2022
The Alan Fleming Tennis Tournament began as a local Seabrook Island event in the early 1980s. Since then it has grown into a premier tournament in the Southeast and nationally, attracting more than 250 senior tennis players from as many as 20 states. Spectator admission is open to the public and free.
The tournament has become a key event for the Charleston region and beyond and the US Tennis Association (USTA) has awarded the tournament its highest-level status for its mixed doubles 40s, 50s, and 60s events. The Championship tournament joins an elite class of tournaments in the Southeast awarding 200 points to the winners of the various divisions. The tournament offers competition for men and women ages 30-80 in singles, doubles and mixed doubles events.
As tournament time approaches, the need for volunteers to pull off the charity event moves into high gear. With a growing number of players and spectators, volunteers are needed to help with everything from registering and handing out favors to players to assisting in the “players’ lounge” (handing out drinks, restocking the ice cream cooler and interacting with the players) to helping direct cars to a parking spot.
If you are interested in volunteering please contact Karen Petrucelli at firstname.lastname@example.org.
