TENNIS

MARTINSBURG — The WVU Hospitals East Foundation will sponsor its 19th annual Tennis Classic on Sept. 10 at Saint James School in Maryland.

Organized by a group of local physicians, the event was established in 2004 as a fundraiser to benefit WVU Medicine Berkeley Medical Center. The tournament was renamed the Frank Sabado, Jr., MD Tennis Classic in 2015 in memory of one of the event’s founders and longtime chairman.

The event raised $234,500 to support various patient services at Berkeley Medical Center. In 2016, the committee chose to establish the Frank Sabado Jr. MD Tennis Classic Scholarship for area graduates pursuing careers in medicine.

“Each year, a one-time scholarship of $2,000 is awarded to one student from each of six public high schools in Berkeley and Jefferson counties,” said Dr. Roberto Reyna. “It’s a way for us to support local students who want to become doctors.

The annual Frank Sabado, Jr., MD Tennis Classic is a round robin format with best performing doubles awarded. Trophies are given to the top two players in the men’s and women’s divisions, as well as the player with the most aces. To participate, registrants must be 16 years old by September 1st.

Registration begins at 8:00 a.m. on the St. James School tennis courts and play begins at 9:00 a.m. Individual player registration fee is $100. Corporate sponsorships are also available at the $1,000, $500 and $250 levels. An awards ceremony with lunch, provided by Sodexo and Martin Distributing Company, will immediately follow the end of the game.
