Franklin Cup Tennis at DeBordieu
More Tennis activity takes place at DeBordieu this weekend as the 2011 Franklin Cup Jr. Tennis Event gets underway Saturday, September 10. The event is held each year in loving memory of Franklin R. Bauer, (1933-2004.)
We have a special guest this year, Mikael Pernfors, who will be at DeBordieu on Saturday and Sunday to coach, mingle and play with the kids. Saturday night during the BBQ dinner, Mikael will play an exhibition match against some of the kids as well and some of the local pros. According to DeBordieu Head Tennis Professional, Vlad handle, “If you have never seen Mikael in action, believe me it is a treat.”
Pernfors is a past French Open Finalist, (losing to Ivan Lendl). He won 3 singles titles on tour, reached a career high of #10 in the World and won 2 NCAA singles titles while at the University of Georgia. He currently plays on the Senior Tour with Jim Courier and the boys as well as competes in the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon Senior events. “He's a great guy”, said Vlad, "and I know you will all enjoy his insight into the game as well as his Swedish humor."
DeBordieu Colony is an oceanfront community located just south of Pawleys Island, South Carolina featuring private golf and tennis, saltwater creek access to the ocean, a manned security gate, and luxury homes and villas surrounded by thousands of acres of wildlife and nature preserves.
