Jason Morton Tennis Classic

The Jason Morton Tennis Classic will be held March 9-12 in Sun Lakes, AZ. According to John Radcliffe (jradcliffe@msn.com) the tournament director, "This is the third year for this tournament and it has grown each year because of our desire to provide a tournament that caters to the player by providing great value, low entry fees and a wonderful facility that has 10 hard courts and 4 Har Tru clay courts. This event is also a Sectional Level, USTA sanctioned event offering 250 ranking points.  We also offer prize money of $100 first and $75 second for entries of 8 or more and $75 first and $50 second for less than 8 entries. Entry fees are $25 singles and $36 for a doubles team [$18 each]. In addition, we offer great food, coffee, soft drinks and bottled water for all players and spectators for the entire 4 day event. The only way we can do this is through some sponsorship we have obtained.

This tournament always has a large turn out for women. I’m always trying to promote our tournament as I have seen a drastic decline in the number of players in most tournaments. Lots of reasons for this and I would like to see our tournament become the "must play" event by providing the value missing in most other tournaments. ….. Early March in Phoenix is wonderful.
