Lake Norman Tennis Association receives award

  • Correction You may have noticed that construction and lane closures have not yet started on the diverging diamond interchange, as I wrote last week. The lane closures are now scheduled to start Dec. 16. The lane closures will be every day from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.; at times only one lane will be available each way after midnight.

Congratulations to the Lake Norman Tennis Association for receiving the USTA North Carolina 2013 Tennis Team Event/Program of the Year Award.

Omega Sports presented the award in recognition of the association’s hosting the North Carolina 18-and-older Adult League State Championships June 27-30.

“It is a great honor to have received this award in just the first year of hosting this large event,” said tournament chairman J.D. Weber.

More than 1,300 competitors from across the state traveled to compete in the four-day tournament, played at 12 sites across the Lake Norman area.

Tournament organizers also raised $15,000 in sponsorships.

The tournament will return June 26-29. For information go to visitlakenorman.org.
