I will....to eat the food of course. :) You can see some great tennis. I don't know about the 13 K though. That sounds good but it's of course based on people entering the tourney. The open division is about the only one where some real cash gets doled out. some great tennis to watch though and you eat real well to. :)

I think it's the weekend of the 12th of June. It's aged based so you could get a 5.0 or you could get a 4.0. I think it's like 25 for doubles and 50 for singles or something like that. I'd love to play singles but that's too high so I got a partner and we both pretty much know we are playing for fun. Two 4.0's don't have a chance in hell of winning that especially not at the 35's. :) It's a lot of fun now....you can bet on that.

Yea, I forget bro man's name(Robby Poole) or something but he played for Ole Miss and has some great strokes. He won it year before last but some dude from Chili came down here last year and kicked in everyone. Talk about a one hand backhand and floating across the court. Robby could hit with him but he lost all the points. It was ugly from what I remember. yea come on down bro...it'll be fun. It's during the Riverbend to I think. That's something to do when people get their @$$es handed to them in the first round. :) Seems like the open has 64 guys in it every year.

Well good. So you are a youngin. :) you taking up some classes at UTC? The facility is on the river right next to UTC. It's real nice and all clay for the tourney. I think they may have spent something like a million bucks remodeling it. shoot me an email when you get in town at chatt_town2005@yahoo.com. There is an _ between the second and third T. You can probably get a couple of beers while I drink water and we can tell a few lies and what not while we watch these guys play and critique their games & *****. lol

bahaha, only if you can buy em for me! i am a youngen, i'll on be a sophomore, so i'm only 19! where is this place at? "right on the river next to utc isn't ringing a bell" i woulda thought i would have noticed a 'multi million dollar facility' right next to school! ha

It's litterally on the river right near UTC. If you come out of UTC roundhouse and head toward the river, you'd run smack into the facility before you went into the river. The money is spent on the inside. Now i personally can't see it either but that's what they say and they must have spent quite a few bucks. They are recruiting potential members that haven't been recruited in the past. :) I don't drink so I won't be buying any beer for any youngins. :) They I think give those beers away anyway...at least til their gone. They eat Carrabas as well as other good food.

Scoville Jenkins to the best of my knowledge is still trying to play professionally although at the moment he's certainly not tour level. You can look at the tournament website player entry list to see who has entered. At a quick glance I see at least one player with a current ATP ranking and several former and current D1 players entered.

Scoville Jenkins is in the tourney. Maybe he's getting a little frustrated not making any progress on tour. Maybe he lost some sponsorship and is playing money tournaments to make some dough.

jpr 06-07-2010 08:58 AM

i'm playing. great tourney. open divisions stocked w current & former D1 players.

i'm 4.5 playing 35s singles & doubles against former D1 & tour players. i assume the draw wont be kind. i'll be happy with 6 games. will be fun

Oscar Bustos, from Chile, perhaps? BHBH

Definitely the most talent laden tournament I've played in. Scoville lost in the Semi's 6-1 6-1....and the guy that beat him lost 6-2 6-3 in the finals.
