Last updated 6/13/2019 at Noon
The Snohomish Summer Smash, a three-day tournament for high school players ages 14-18, returns for its fifth year to the Snohomish High School Tennis Courts on July 26-28.
Registration fees are $30 for singles players and $50 for doubles and mixed doubles teams, with proceeds going to the Snohomish High School boys and girls tennis teams.
Tournament director Kraig Norris, in conjunction with the Snohomish High School coaches, formed the tournament in 2015 to counter the lack of competitive options for players who aren’t registered with the U.S. Tennis Association. Every year they reach out to over 40 high schools and six tennis clubs in the region, with 65 players from 14 high schools taking part last year.
This year’s state tournaments included nine Summer Smash alums, most notably the Jackson High School duo of Anuj Vimawala and Daniel Sohn, who took home the 4A Boys Doubles Championship.
Registration deadline for the tournament is July 17 and players interested in participating can email the tournament director at email@example.com for a registration packet or go to snohomishsummersmash.com.
Westra Sports of Everett returns as the tournament’s Premier Sponsor and will once again provide prizes for the division winners.
