210 College Tennis Teams to Invade Hilton Head Island

Hilton Head Island, SC - - Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) is pleased to announce a record 210 college tennis teams have registered for PTR Spring TennisFest.  210!

With an average eight players per team, that’s 1,680 college tennis players, plus coaches, support staff and parents!  All coming to Hilton Head Island to enjoy our beautiful home, visit our beaches, play on our tennis courts, stay in our hotels and villas, and dine in our restaurants. Welcome them with open arms and come out to support your favorite college team. 

Spring TennisFest is a healthy alternative to the ‘traditional’ Spring Break, and coordinates with the calendar of each school’s break, so most of the action - 800 matches - takes place the first and second weeks of March, but will continue until it tapers off at end of the month.Players and coaches love the opportunity to compete with teams from schools they would not otherwise get to play.  Exhibition matches will also be scheduled at area tennis clubs.

PTR is the largest global organization of tennis teaching professionals with more than 16,000 members in 125 countries.  It has the greatest percentage of multicultural and women members of any such organization.  PTR is dedicated to educating, certifying and servicing tennis teachers and coaches around the world in order to grow the game.
