Youth Guidance King of the Hill tennis tournament underway

The Youth Guidance Mentoring Academy’s 2020 King of the Hill Tennis Tournament started Tuesday, Jan. 14. King of the Hill will be held at two locations this year. The 40’s and 50’s Divisions will be at the Boulevard Tennis Club on consecutive Tuesdays, now through Feb. 4. The Open Division will be held at the Moorings Yacht and Country Club from Feb. 11 through March 3.

The eight-week tournament will start at 6 p.m. with local pros vying to be named King of the Hill.

Now in its 25th year, King of the Hill gives tennis fans the opportunity to enjoy high level doubles competition, while providing local tennis professionals the chance to participate in the festivities and appreciate the spirit of competition.

“Each year, our King of The Hill Tennis Tournament raises funds for Youth Guidance mentoring programs and activities for underprivileged children, from low-income families in Indian River County,” said Executive Director, Felix L. Cruz. “We serve approximately 300 children, who without the support of this fundraiser would not have access to the free resources that our agency provides, including mentoring, programs, activities, academic support, summer camp and a nutritious meal.”

All proceeds support Youth Guidance Mentoring Academy. In fulfilling its mission, Youth Guidance is dedicated to enriching the lives of Indian River County youth through mentoring relationships that inspire trust, self-esteem and positive futures.
