Tennis tourney measures skill

The second annual High School Pre-Season Compass Draw Challenge will be held at Western Washington University September 1 and 2. This regional junior tennis tournament is an excellent opportunity for both JV and Varsity players and their coaches to see how they stack up against other high school players in the area.

Though the tournament will have men’s and women’s events, it is particularly timely for the boys as their competitive school season begins in the fall. The unique compass draw format is also ideal in that players are never eliminated in early rounds, but continue on to play others of their own skill level.

The tournament is organized by Eric Cramer, head tennis professional at Semiahmoo Golf and Country Club. Cramer is a USPTA certified tennis pro with five years of teaching experience who has taught many of the junior high and high school players from Blaine, Lynden, Ferndale and Bellingham.

Entry forms for the tournament may be picked up at Semiahmoo Golf and Country Club tennis courts or may be called in to the Cramer at 650-9139 by August 29. .
