Inaugural ‘Battle of the Beaches’ tennis event held


On Feb. 25, Sawgrass hosted the first "Battle of the Beaches" tennis event. Ponte Vedra Inn & Club and Sawgrass Country Club battled for the championship trophy with five lines of doubles in men’s and women’s tennis, along with three lines of mixed doubles for a total of 13 matches. Each match win counted as one point for the team total. 

It was a great day of tennis competition with many of the matches going into super tie-breaker third sets.  

At the end of the tournament, Sawgrass Country Club defeated Ponte Vedra Inn & Club, 8 to 5, to win the "Battle of the Beaches" and bragging rights until next year.
