Tennis players to face off in 3rd annnual Summer Smash tournament on July 21-23

Jun 16, 2017

The third annual Snohomish Summer Smash, a three-day tournament for high school players ages 14-18, is scheduled for July 21-23 at the Snohomish High School Tennis Courts.

Registration fees 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.

“We have reached out to the coaches of 35 high schools from Shoreline to Blaine, trying to increase exposure and get as many players competing as possible,” tournament Director Kraig 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 13  Summer Smash alums compete, including six who medaled. Registration deadline for the tournament is July 12 and players interested in participating can email the tournament director at kraignorris1@yahoo.com for a registration packet, or go to snohomishsummersmash.com.
