In its’ 29th consecutive year, Green Tree’s turkey tourney stands out as engagingly unique and one of the cities most enjoyable and popular tournaments. Turkeys and cornish hens are given out as first and second place prizes. The tournament is known for its competitive play and most importantly, the all important Turkey shirt.
The “Turkey Tournament” is a tournament for San Antonio . It is for all levels of players to include adults and juniors. It is not sanctioned and therefore is not to be played for a “ranking”. Rather the tournament is played as a celebration of the competitive spirit and the love players have for the game of tennis. Local teaching professions, San Antonio High School coaches and the city’s top juniors participate in the tourney.
