Jim Russell Junior Tournament of the Year

Junior tournament which offers outstanding organization and officiating on the court and amenities off the court.

The South Carolina Closed Clay Court State Championships

This year, the Jim Russell Junior Tournament of the Year Award is being presented to The South Carolina Closed Clay Court Championships, hosted by the Greenville Country Club. 

This South Carolina Level 2 tournament had 120 entrants in all age groups. Close to 250 matches were held, and not once was a referee called to a court. With three full days of tournament competition and a state championship on the line, not a single player conducted themselves in a way that would indicate poor sportsmanship.
