Great Vacations Across the South By Playing Tennis

Southern Age Group Tournaments are an excellent way to vacation along with the fun of playing competitive tennis. Each year the Southern Sectional Office publishes the Southern Adult & Senior Tournament Calendar that includes all tournaments sanctioned by the USTA Southern Section which qualify under the point system for receiving a Southern Adult Ranking.
Desire a Summer getaway to the mountains and play tennis along the banks of the Tennessee River, the TVOC( Tennessee Valley Open Championships) in Chattanooga, TN makes an excellent option in vacation plans. The Manker Patten Tennis Club provides a beautiful setting for this tennis tourney. The Guerry family and Chattem Labs sponsor this exciting tournament each year with appearances in the open division by All-SEC athletes and some of the top-ranked junior players in the nation. Great food and entertainment for all!
Another option might be The Bocage Senior Invitational in the Spring. Louisiana crawfish and Southern hospitality abound in the Old South environment at the Bocage Racquet Club in Baton Rouge, LA. Plenty of entertainment possibilities and be sure to bring lots of white tennis attire . The racquet club has a Wimbledon dress code.
