29th Annual Columbia Junior Open Tennis Tournament Sets New Attendance Record!

The Howard County Tennis Association's 29th Annual Columbia Junior Open Tennis Tournament was recently held at the Wilde Lake Tennis Club from July 13 - 15, 2009 for girls and boys in the 12-18 age categories. This year, we had a total of 147 entries this year--A NEW ATTENDANCE RECORD!. We were proud to recognize Howard County's own John Healey for his superb showing as a 4th place finisher in the Boys 18s Singles championship. We would like to express our appreciation to the parents, players, USTA officials, tournament committee, and sponsors for making this event such a success. As the only USTA sanctioned tournament for juniors in Howard County, we look forward to putting on this event again next year--OUR 30TH YEAR! We are working to do something real special for this event, so stay tuned!
