With more than 300 players from seven different states, Rick and Bubba’s third annual Super Summer Slam was a success again this year, said Chaney Mills, the coordinator of tennis development for the Pelham Racquet Club.

“The weather was perfect, which is a big deal when you’re playing tennis,” Mills said.

The tournament is the largest in the Southeast to feature National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) age-distribution.
