Brevard NC Tennis Tournament to benefit SAFE

The third annual "Serve it up for SAFE" tennis tournament is set for September 19-21. This tennis event is a wonderful opportunity to play tennis at the Brevard Tennis and Athletic Club, Brevard, NC's premier tennis and fitness center, and help raise money to benefit victims of domestic violence and abuse.Safe Tennis Tournament

According to SAFE, last year's event raised over $10,000. This year's event promises to be even bigger and the funds will go to support SAFE's new and larger shelter.

SAFE is a non-profit organization that provides free services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Transylvania County. They provide food, shelter, counseling, and court assistance for victims of abuse and sexual assault.

This year's event kicks off with a reception at the Brevard Tennis club on Friday, September 19. Play starts Saturday morning and will consist of doubles events for adult men and women. Players will compete by rating categories, but if you don't have a USTA rating, you can self-rate and still compete. It is a single elimination format with a consolation bracket. Prizes will be awarded to winners in each rating level. Plus, all players will be entered into a Grand Prize Drawing for a tennis racquet of the winner's choice, courtesy of the tennis club. A light breakfast and lunch are included in the registration fee of $35.00
