NOTE ABOUT OUR AMAZING PHOTOS – We’ve had some great tennis going on every day as part of the Alan Fleming Tournament.   If you haven’t been able to watch all the matches you were interested in, don’t forget that we have a large library of photos which are being published online on a daily basis.   Our volunteers’ goal has been to get a few shots of every player in every match.  We’ve probably missed a few, but most of the matches are well covered with high quality images.

Web-sized images (2048 pixels) are free for unlimited download.   Any profits on purchases of prints or wall art goes 100% to the Seabrook Island Employee Assistance Fund.    To view these photos just click here.  Images are organized by day and are chronological within each day. We also post some of the photos on the tournament website. You can see those by clicking here.

We think you will agree that we have photographic evidence that our tournament players have really been “leaving it all out there on the court”!
