Alan Fleming Tennis Tournament To Seize The Court In October

Staff Report for The Island Connection

The Seabrook Island Racquet Club has announced the annual Alan Fleming Senior Open Clay State Championship to be held on Seabrook Island from Oct. 5-9. The event has grown into a premier tournament in the Southeast and nationally, attracting more than 250 senior tennis players from as many as 20 states. The tournament has become a key event for the Charleston region and beyond and the US Tennis Association has awarded the event Level 1 and 3 Status. The tournament offers competition for men and women ages 30-80 in singles, doubles and mixed doubles events.

Registration opens in August. An important component of the tournament has been a tradition of philanthropy to benefit local charitable organizations. This year’s committee has selected Sea Island Hunger Awareness and Barrier Island Free Medical Clinic as the recipients. 

“The committee recognizes there is an incredible need to fight hunger and provide free medical care to residents on Johns and Wadmalaw Islands. Each of these organizations do outstanding work in providing food and healthcare to the community,” stated tournament chair Karen Petrucelli. 

The event offers opportunities for local businesses to be sponsors and promote their services to the community. Several sponsorship opportunities are available. For additional information, visit alanflemingtournament.net.
