Beaufort, SC --- The United States Tennis Association Dataw Splash! was held this weekend across three area tennis courts: Fripp Island, Spring Island, and the host site, Dataw Island.

Nearly 200 players gathered to compete in this USTA level three tournament, sanctioned by the Southern South Carolina region of the United States Tennis Association. Held annually Dataw Island, the overwhelming response this year has caused the event to grow into an even bigger event with even more competition, and incorporating these additional venues.

Dataw Island Director of Lawn & Racquet Sports, Warren Florence, says “We love seeing so many players return year after year. This tournament has grown to be a summer tradition for them to come together year after year, seeing old friends and creating new friendships.”

Florence went on to say that Dataw Island is grateful to all the volunteers, community support and sponsors, without whom the event would not be possible, especially our partner facilities this year. “The local tennis community benefits from some great relationships; being able to tap into these other local courts allowed us to welcome a huge field of competitors to the Lowcountry.”
