DOCTA Jr. Open 2017

The Durham-Orange Community Tennis Association (DOCTA) hosted its Annual Open Jr. Tennis Challenge on July 28-30, 2017 in partnership with the Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation. In collaboration with the Chapel Hill/Carrboro Schools, East Chapel Hill High School was the main site for the 119 entries for the tournament that was showcased at three high school sites, including the Carrboro and Chapel Hill High School tennis courts.

Great tennis was enjoyed from the tennis fans and families that looked on as North Carolina players, ages 12 to 18 boys and girls shared their talents. After overcoming Friday nights rain and thunderstorms, the DOCTA Open was full of sunshine!

The DOCTA Media Report with semifinal and final winners is available here, along with photo highlights of all the winners.

Special thanks to all the participants and volunteers who helped to make this wonderful tennis tournament a success!
