Southern Junior Tournament of the Year

December 18, 2002 03:24 PM

Bullfrog/USTA Southern Section Designated Tournament
Jackson, MS

Held at the Bridges Tennis Center in Jackson, the Bullfrog/USTA Southern Section Designated featured over 500 singles players competing in age groups ranging from 12’s to 18’s. In its first year at the Bridges Tennis Center, the event organization and volunteer support was superb. Parents of many of the competitors raved about the tourney. “This event set the standard for planning and management, said one parent. “I don’t know how the tournament staff was able to coordinate so many excellent sites, but it paid off. The tournament committee and all involved should be commended.” Led by tournament director Beckie Barry, the 30 plus volunteers at the event did a phenomenal job to keep the event well organized. The event had fantastic amenities for the players, including goodie bags, t-shirts and ample amounts of food. In addition, Cabot Lodge, Bancorp South and University Sporting Goods were corporate sponsors of the event. All proceeds were donated to the Mississippi Patrons Foundation.
