Murfreesboro, Tenn. - Middle Tennessee State University's tennis programs would like to invite you and your family to the 21st Annual Pro-Am Tennis Classic with a special tribute to Dale Short and his 20 years of coaching at MT. This year's event will be held September 7-8 and will be played at the Buck Bouldin Tennis Center next to the Murphy Athletic Complex.

Activities will begin on Friday evening, September 7, at 6:00 p.m. with a tennis clinic and "Hit with the Pros" session followed by a short exhibition. Dinner, along with a program, will begin at approximately 7:30 p.m. at the Emmett and Rose Kennon Sports Hall of Fame Building located next to the tennis courts.

The men's and women's doubles tournament will be held Saturday, September 8, at 8:00 a.m. and finish approximately at 2:00 p.m. Lunch and drinks will be provided during the day. An awards ceremony will conclude the day's activities.

The Pro-Am will be a doubles tournament format with a back draw. We will be utilizing area teaching pros with current and former players as pros. All amateurs will be matched with one of the pros and will play in the doubles tournament, and everyone will be guaranteed five matches. Besides the fun, there are plenty of prizes including trips and tennis gear.

All participants will receive a shirt or blouse. All non-participants who donate a minimum of $125.00 will receive the same if unable to attend. This is the tennis programs' one fundraising event of the year. The recent court resurfacing and upgrades have depleted most of our fund raising dollars.
