Registration now open for the Winston-Salem Adaptive Open

This national tournament is being held this year (2014) from Thursday, May 15th to Saturday, May 17th at the Vision Tennis Center in Clemmons, NC.

The tournament is free to athletes (hotel and travel expenses not included). Meals are being provided on Friday and Saturday for athletes and coaches.  We’ll have additional food available for family members and guests (donations accepted to cover these costs).

Registration begins on Thursday, May 15th at 5:30; divisioning starting at 6:00. Matches will start on Friday and Saturday around 8:30 a.m.

Friday night we will have an evening of fun times and a movie. Saturday night we will go and see the Dash, Winston Salem’s minor league baseball team. We had so much fun last year that we decided to do it again. We have reserved 100 tickets so we will need to know how many will be attending from your group.

As we did last year we are offering skills, short court and full court matches. We are anticipating a lot of local athletes coming in to participate in skills this year so we are planning on holding the skills competition on Saturday. If you are bringing skills athletes from out of town we will get them on the court on Friday too.

Host Hotel
Our host hotel, the Village Inn is holding 20 rooms for us. If you think you are coming, please reserve your room as soon as possible at www.thevillageinn.com.

The cost of the hotel rooms is $72 plus tax and includes breakfast. The hotel is less than 5 minutes from the Vision Tennis Center.  Ask for the Abilities Tennis block or the Winston Salem Adaptive Open block to get the rate.

Airport
The closest airport is Greensboro.  You may be able to get better prices and times by flying into Raleigh/Durham (1 1/2 hour drive).
