Mid-Atlantic Clay Courts Still Growing After 15 Years
Salisbury Country Club in Chesterfield County will host the Mid-Atlantic Clay Court Championships for its 15th year. The tennis tournament will begin July 8 and conclude on July 13. The tournament has more than doubled the size of the draw, the number of sponsors, and the number of spectators, since its first year. This year we are expecting college players, local pros, and coaches from all over the country. Our goal is to attract top ranked professionals. Last year we increased the prize money to $7,000 for the mens and womens singles winner. Our tournament amenities are bar none. We continue each year to grow this high quality event.
Scott Steinour, the tennis director at Salisbury Country Club says, “We are so proud of how this tournament has grown over the last fifteen years. We are also extremely grateful to our sponsors, without whom this event would be impossible. This event also demonstrates what an impressive tennis community is right here in Richmond. This tournament draws not only top players, but the most appreciative and knowledgeable fans imaginable.”
The tournament’s major sponsors include McDonald’s, Virginia Cancer Institute, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Anthem, Brown’s Volkswagon, Keiter, Haley Automotive Group, SMARTBOX Portable Storage & Moving, Computer Resource Company, Stuller, Connelly, Finfgeld, LLC, Livewire, Asset Protection Group, Vino Market, Davis & Nyczepir, Capital Waste Services, Lane Homes, Big Herm’s Catering, Mr. Able Propane and Commonwealth Surgical Solutions.
