The State Games of Oklahoma Tennis Tournament to be held in Enid in 2018

OKLAHOMA CITY – Tennis will once again be a part of the sport listing for The State Games of Oklahoma – 2018 Summer Games. The tournament will be held in Enid, Oklahoma from June 29 – July 1 at the Oakwood Country Club. This marks the first-time a State Games event will be held in the City of Enid.

Matt Lopez and Dwayne Campbell will be the new sport directors for the tournament. “We are excited to offer a change of scenery for participants and welcome everyone to Enid. We can’t wait to host the games and deliver a great tournament experience to all,” Lopez said.

The adult tournament is expected to attract over 100 athletes from across the state to participate in the three-day event. The competition will be open to athletes of all abilities from novice to expert.

The tournament is made possible through a new partnership between The State Games of Oklahoma and the Enid Tennis Association, Oakwood Country Club and the Visit Enid office.

“Here at Visit Enid, we greatly appreciate the City of Enid’s attention to refurbishing many of the tennis courts available in town. The results of those efforts are being awarded events such as The State Games of Oklahoma. An event that will bring new visitors to town and expose them to what Enid has to offer,” said Marcy Jarrett, Director of Visit Enid.

Registration will open later this spring. For more information on the Tennis tournament and other State Games events, visit the official site at www.stategamesofoklahoma.org.
