Junior Tennis Classic Set For Sept.


Guam- Tennis Academy of Guam proudly announces the inaugural ASC Juniors Tennis Classic 2010 set for September 10 – 12; 17 – 19 at the Sheraton Guam Laguna Resort. TAG Director Joe Cepeda has teamed up with ASC Trust Corporation President David John to bring to the youth tennis players a tournament just for the age divisions of U8 to U18, both boys and girls, in the levels brackets of Novice, Intermediate and Open. TAG anticipates over 120 youth players making it the largest juniors tournament on Guam.

Sanctioned by the United States Tennis Association (USTA), member players can receive points as they win in the Open division thus increasing their junior rankings nation-wide. To become a member, players must apply online at www.usta.com.

TAG, ASC and tournament co-sponsors, Sheraton Guam Laguna Resort, Hafa Adai Signs, Pacific Daily News, Arirang Restaurant, PayLess Supermarkets and Pacific Charlie Apparel would like to promote the event’s theme: “Attitude, Sportsmanship and Character”. ASC President David John states, “ We hope to instill in our young athletes attributes that will take them beyond sports and into the ‘real word’ since tennis is as much a mental game as it is a physical one.”

Applications are available at Sheraton Tennis Courts, RNTC courts in Hagåtña and Hilton tennis courts. Deadline for registration is 5pm Friday, September 03. Singles matches are set for Sept. 10 – 12; Doubles on Sept. 17 – 19 and Awards will be given on Sept. 25.
