“The ASC Family Classic continues to be one of the most popular annual tennis tournaments in Guam”
GUAM – Skilled Singles events will officially open the Annual ASC Trust Corporation Family Classic 2015 tennis tournament, set for the weekend of Aug. 28 at the Rick Ninete Tennis Center in Hagåtña and the Sheraton Laguna Guam Resort tennis courts.
“The ASC Family Classic continues to be one of the most popular annual tennis tournaments in Guam,” said Joe Cepeda, tournament director. “Each year, we’ve seen the number of entries consistently increase and now, in its sixth year, we hope to see even more players register for the tournament.
“Based on feedback from players from previous tournaments, we’ll now feature matches from the Aged Singles and Aged Mixed Doubles events on weeknights beginning at 5 p.m., rather than reserving only the weekends for tennis play in these divisions,” Cepeda added.
The Skilled Singles events – Men’s and Women’s Open, Men’s 4.5, and Men’s and Women’s 4.0, 3.0, and 2.0 divisions – are set to begin Aug. 28 and conclude on Aug. 30. Registration for the Skill Singles events will close at 5 p.m. on Aug. 21.
The Aged Singles events – Men’s and Women’s 35+, 45+, and 55+ – will begin Aug. 31 and will be played through to Sept. 3 in the evenings. Registration for these events will close at 5 p.m. on Aug. 24.
The weekend of Sept. 4 will feature Aged Doubles events and Junior Singles events, followed by the Skilled Doubles events and Junior Doubles events beginning the weekend of Sept. 11.
Aged Mixed Doubles will begin the Sept. 14 and played through Sept. 18 in the evening. The final weekend will feature Family Doubles and Family Mixed Doubles events.
The registration fee is $20 for the first event and $10 for each additional event. Players competing in the Junior Singles and Junior Doubles events will need to be current members of the USTA, which may incur additional fees if not already registered.
