Summer Smash Tennis Tournament returning to Snohomish in July
The third annual Snohomish Summer Smash, a three-day tournament for high school players ages 14-18, will take place July 21st-23rd at the Snohomish High School Tennis Courts. Registration costs are $25 for Singles players and $40 for Doubles teams, with a two-match minimum ensured for players, and water and tournament t-shirts provided. Trophies will be awarded for each division winner. Proceeds go to the Snohomish High School Boys and Girls Tennis Teams.
Tournament Director Kraig Norris, in conjunction with Snohomish High School Coach Dick Jansen, created the tournament two years ago in effort to create more competitive playing opportunities for high school players. “We have reached out to the coaches of thirty five high schools from Shoreline to Blaine, trying to increase exposure and get as many players competing as possible,” Norris said. “This is a chance for players from different districts and divisions to compete against each for the first time. For someone hoping to secure a spot on their Varsity team, this is a chance to get some playing time, and players who have played only Singles will have a chance to try their hand at Doubles, and vice versa.”
This year’s State Tournaments saw thirteen Summer Smash alums compete, including six who medaled. Registration deadline for the tournament is July 12th, and players interested in participating can email the tournament director at email@example.com for a registration packet, or go to snohomishsummersmash.com.
