HICKORY SELECTED BY THE USTA AS ONE OF THE TOP 10 BEST TENNIS TOWNS

April 11, 2010 12:58 PM

The USTA's Best Tennis Town contest is looking for the community that best exemplifies the passion, excitement, community spirit and impact tennis brings to members of the community.  A group of local citizens from the Parks and Rec. Dept, GHTA, the City, the Mayor and others met to discuss Hickory's tennis community and apply for this honor!!  The Grand Prize winner will receive $100,000, 1st Place $50,000 and 2nd Place $25,000.  Fifty-six communities applied and Hickory made the top 10!!  To win we need everyone to go to www.besttennistown.com and vote for Hickory.  Once you vote a confirmation e-mail will be sent to you.  You must click on the link to confirm your vote. 

Unfortunately we did not win, but we did receive $2,000.00 worth of equipment for the tennis programs that Kathy Kim runs as the YMCA and Jebrille Walls runs at Brown Penn Center.  They got to order what they wanted and when the equipment came in they were like "kids opening Christmas presents."  It was very exciting to see. 

We will be applying again in 2010.
