Phyllis Meyers’ Turkey Tournament
The Tennis staff at CBRC feels it’s important to be part of our community outside of the club. Each year, we hold several events to help tennis grow in the Tri-Cities. In 2015, the Phyllis Meyer Tennis Association (PMTA) was established as a 501.3c for this purpose. In 2016, the PMTA was re-established as the Mid-Columbia Tennis Association (MCTA), an organization formed “to grow the lifelong sport of tennis throughout the Mid-Columbia community by providing equipment, opportunity, and resources.” The annual “Phyllis Meyer Turkey Tournament”, in memory of long-time CBRC member and avid tennis player, Phyllis Meyer, is held each November. The tournament draws players from around the Tri-Cities, Walla Walla, Yakima, and Northeastern Oregon for singles & doubles round robin play, and now benefits the MCTA.
- In 2015, the PMTA held an event at Market Vineyard the weekend before the “Turkey Tournament” to raise money for our local programs. This event, combined with the annual “Turkey Tournament”, subsidized $9000 worth of tennis equipment for local juniors in Pasco & Richland.
- In 2016, the “Turkey Tournament” once again raised several thousand dollars for to the MCTA.
CBRC and the entire tennis community thanks you for your support.
