The ball is in your court! Teams and individual players can now register to compete in the 19th EDGE Tennis Tournament on Saturday, September 9 at the Northeast Harbor Tennis Club. The Tournament benefits the Mission’s EdGE education program.
Composed of men’s doubles and women’s doubles playing at advanced and intermediate levels, eight-player teams compete throughout the day. The Tournament will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with breakfast and lunch provided. Sunday, September 10 is scheduled as a rain date.
Registration for a team of eight is $1,400 and single player registration is $50. Single player participants may also join and will be assigned to a team by the Tournament directors. An organization, business, or person can also sponsor a team and Tournament directors will assign single players.
Proceeds from the tournament fund EdGE. The program offers collaborative and innovative afterschool, summer, in-school, and leadership activities to children in seven schools located along Washington County’s Downeast coast. EdGE provides students opportunities to expand their knowledge and experiences through academic and social support, and peer mentoring. Students challenge themselves, engage with their communities, explore the outdoors, and gain social and leadership skills to build personal, career, and post-secondary education aspirations.
