VERO BEACH — The Youth Guidance 16th Annual King of the Hill Tennis Tournament will be held Thursday evenings, January 13, 20, 27 and February 3, 10, 17, at The Boulevard Village and Tennis Club, Vero Beach. This exciting competition involves professionals (U.S.P.T.A.) from Vero Beach and surrounding areas.
This six week event begins each Thursday at 6 pm. Tickets are $8 each; admittance to all six matches is discounted to $40.
The King of the Hill Tennis Tournament of Vero Beach originated in January 1996 to provide area tennis fans the opportunity to enjoy high level doubles competition and tennis professionals the chance to participate in and enjoy the spirit of competition.
Over 1,500 spectators come and watch the tennis pros compete for the title of “King of the Hill”. All monies raised will directly benefit the children in the Youth Guidance Mentoring & Activities Program, a local United Way Partner Agency. In addition to spectacular tennis, there will be a lot of excitement including a 50/50 raffle and auction items.
The primary purpose of Youth Guidance is to match each of its nearly 700 at-risk K-
12 grade children with a volunteer mentor 21 years or older who will spend just a few hours a week with their mentee doing friendship based activities that they both enjoy.
