The City of Tallahassee and the Tallahassee Tennis Association are sponsoring the Golden Age Tennis Invitational for players 65 years and above, to be held at the Forestmeadows Tennis Complex in Tallahassee, Fla., on Nov. 9-10, 2013.
 
Proceeds from the first-time event will benefit Second Harvest food bank.
 
Divisions include NTRP 6.0, 7.0 and 8.0 for men's, women's and mixed doubles for players 65 years old and above. Scoring will be 6-game pro sets with no-ad games, with a guaranteed minimum number of matches. Saturday will feature tournament play, and Sunday a social round robin mixer from 9-11:30 a.m.
 
"Even though this will be two days of round-robin tennis matches, players will be able to remain with their personal partner for the entire weekend," says Tournament Co-chairperson Pat Roddenberry. "We are certainly looking forward to player participation, and if successful, we plan to make it an annual affair...Also If players do not have a partner, we will certainly find one for them."
 
The tournament registration deadline is Nov. 3, and the cut-off date for making player-discounted reservations at the Cabot Lodge in Tallahassee is Oct. 28 for a special rate of $79 per night. The Cabot Lodge amenities include a complimentary hot breakfast buffet and a nightly Manager's Reception. The Cabot Lodge is only four miles from Forestmeadows Tennis Complex and just off I-10.
