Men's Tennis Hosting Prestigious Tennis Invitational This Weekend

Jan. 3, 2013

Patch Reef Park will be the place to be this weekend as the Florida Atlantic University men’s tennis team hosts two nationally ranked teams and another regionally ranked opponent in a four-team invitational. Tournament play gets underway on Friday and will conclude on Sunday, with matches beginning each day at 8 a.m.

This tournament brings Indiana University of the Big Ten Conference, the University of Louisville from the Big East Conference and Radford University of the Big South Conference to the community for three days of matches that kick off the 2013 tennis season.

Read a full preview of this invitational here.

The Owls, led by Coach Brandon Stokes, are coming off a successful fall campaign in which sophomore Will Neuner won the singles consolation title at the Dick Vitale Clay Court Invitational. He won eight singles matches and teamed with senior Jose Fantova to capture two of the three fall doubles matches. Fantova also won four singles matches.

Patch Reef Park is located at 1200 Yamato Road in Boca Raton. I encourage all South Florida tennis fans to support the Owls this weekend and watch some exciting collegiate tennis.
