April 25, 2023

Join SouthPark Magazine and Wheel Serve NC for the SouthPark Pro-Am — a fun day of tennis for a great cause.

June 10 from 3 to 9 p.m. at Olde Providence Racquet Club

A round-robin style competition for 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5+ divisions.

Winning players in each division will be paired with local tennis pros for a championship round. Prizes, giveaways and a player reception!

Top wheelchair tennis players will also compete and be featured in a separate Pro-Am.

Tickets to participate are $125 per player, which includes food during play and the player reception following the Pro-Am round. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Wheel Serve NC, a nonprofit statewide tennis organization that provides opportunities for people in wheelchairs to play tennis recreationally and competitively. Able-body players will have an opportunity to play with wheelchair players during the competition and are invited to sponsor a wheelchair player.

See the full schedule and details for the day below.

There is no charge to cheer on the players and appreciate the competitive tennis!

Details for the day:


  • Combined wheelchair and able-bodied divisional round-robin style play. Each player will total 3 rounds of timed matches — 30 minutes of play per round.
  • Divisions based on 3.5-, 4.0- and 4.5+-level players: depending on registrations, pairings may be gender neutral with every effort to provide level-based play.
  • Wheelchair players, paired with able-bodied players, will play rounds on hard courts and use the same point scoring system, ending with a wheelchair championship match paired with a professional for the top two players with highest game count.
  • Competition is individual-based. Each player will have a tally of games won and the top two players with highest game count in each division will qualify for the final match paired with a local professional tennis player. Wheelchair championship will be played on a hard court. Able-bodied championships will be played on Courts 2-4 (3.5, 4.0 and 4.5+), and there will be an exhibition doubles match with four local pros.
