The 2023 Pentwater Ludington Tennis Match was rained out. The 2024 match will be played on July 6.
Pentwater/ Ludington Tennis Tournament
The longstanding “Broken Toe” Tennis Tournament has Pentwater players competing with players from the Ludington area. The event received its name early on when Ludington player Jack Shillinger donated a new trophy, but was unable to compete after breaking his toe that same year. The coveted “Broken Toe Trophy” and annual bragging rights are awarded to the winner each year.
The tournament is played annually at the Ludington High School Tennis facility. We encourage fans to attend and become cheering sections for both teams!
The Ludington Daily News was kind enough to publish a story about how Pentwater & Ludington had split the trophy in2021, and a similar story was published in 2022 describing another split of the trophy. The latter story didn’t touch on the extend of the upset that had occurred when the Pentwater men finally prevailed. The Ludington men had dominated for many years leading up to that point, but the addition of some new players for Pentwater made the difference. The Pentwater ladies are hoping to get back on track in 2023. Our respect for our Ludington opponent couldn’t be any higher. The PTPC appreciates them hosting the tournament at their top notch public facility each year.
