I haven't been on The Topolis for a while (not that anyone missed me) as we have been ramping up (that's high tech BS business jargon for simply working on a project) and finding sponsors for our coverage of Family Circle Cup in Charleston, SC, to begin March 31.
I have been to the Family Circle Cup facilities several times before for events such as Davis Cup, and I love Charleston (moving back soon) with passion, but I haven't been to an all ladies event since I had to go into the ladies locker room to aid someone in distress at the last gym I managed.
So anyway, we are covering the event the best we can (which ain't half-bad) - some remote and then on-site commentary during the latter portion of the tournament.
We are getting wonderful support from Tennis Express, Andy Ace Tennis, YTEX Strings and Ball Magnet. We may have a few sponsors coming on board in the next few days, but we are already offering over 60 prizes and it's not so difficult to qualify. We are throwing in over $400 worth of prizes ourselves.
You can begin qualifying for prizes right now at Pete's Tennis Press.
We spoke with Mark The Mayor (When are the next elections anyway?) and he said we would not be able to feed our blog posts directly to Tennisoplis (We understand that.), but they can be seen on our other social networks as well.
Our coverage can be found at Pete's Tennis Press, where you can learn more.
Follow along, enjoy the tournament and win some great tennis stuff.
