Sundial Serves Up a Weekend of Fun at USTA SW Florida Clay Court Championships

DATE: October 9, 2017

This year’s USTA SW Florida Clay Court Championship was a huge success with over 70 singles and doubles players out on Sundial’s HydroGrid courts. With lots of action and camaraderie, both players and spectators had a fun filled weekend, especially those who stayed at the resort during the tournament. Our Player’s Party was the icing on the cake, taking place in our Gulf-front ballroom with drinks and appetizers including everyone’s favorite sushi from Shima Grab N Go. Tournament winners received awards designed by Sundial Tennis Program member, Lucas Century.

Special thanks to our great Sundial tennis team and to our sponsors RLR Investments LLC, Royal Shell Real Estate, Port Sanibel Marina, Coastal Outfitters, Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, Sanibel Captiva Islander, Bailey’s Marketplace and to the Kay Casperson Lifestyle Spa & Boutique for player goody bags.
