31st Annual MOrning Star school Tennis Classic

The 31st Annual Morning Star School Tennis Classic took place from May 4th through May 6th at Carrollwood Country Club in Tampa.  We were fortunate that the rain did not delay the tournament for the 105 players who participated in this year's event.

We wish to thank the 105 players who came from near and far to join in on the fun.   There were many competitive doubles matches throughout the 3-day tournament.  Parent volunteers and Morning Star School staff worked hard to make sure these players enjoyed their events and had the snacks and beverages they needed.

We thank Century Bank of Florida and all of our sponsors and tennis players for supporting the children and their talented Special Education Instructors.  Donations from this event are used to benefit elementary and  junior-high age students with learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder and related learning challenges. 

We are fortunate to have such a large community of individuals and businesses that support our mission within the community through their contributions to the annual Tennis Classic.  These individuals and companies are listed below:
