The inaugural Crape Myrtle Tennis Classic was held in July 2004 as N.C.’s first GLTA sanctioned tennis tournament. The name "Crape Myrtle" comes from the Crape Myrtle trees indigenous to the area, which typically bloom in the month of July.
While July provides great weather for Crape Myrtle trees, the typical 90 to 100 degree days can be oppressive for tennis matches. As a result, in 2007, we moved the tournament to the month of Oct., where warm Fall days are still common, but often without the excessive heat and humidity.
Close to 1,000 players have participated in the first eleven CMTCs, with some traveling from as far as the West Coast and Europe. Now in our 12th year, we hope to continue growing and attracting competitive players from all divisions on the GLTA circuit.
