This year is the 10th anniversary of SYS, Inc., Southampton Youth Services, opening the doors of the Southampton Town Recreation Center. To celebrate the milestone and to raise more money for sports scholarships at SYS, Future Stars Southampton will play host to a tennis tournament on October 11.
“Thousands use the facility each year,” says Sharon O. Wood, marketing director at SYS. The Southampton Town Rec Center hosted its grand opening on August 16, 2003. Nine years ago, Future Stars Summer Camps became part of SYS. Three years ago, Future Stars won the bid to establish the first indoor/outdoor tennis facility at SYS. With the help of funds raised by SYS, Future Stars is enabling kids to learn tennis during the indoor season.
The tennis tourney will include a mixed doubles round robin format, followed by men’s and women’s round robin, on Fridat, October 11 from 6:30–9 p.m. Future Stars requests a donation of $150 per person to benefit the SYS Scholarship Fund. All proceeds will benefit the SYS Scholarship Fund, sponsored by Future Stars and LGP Foundations. Click here to register.
