The 2024 match date is July 6th.

Pentwater/ Ludington Tennis Tournament


The longstanding “Broken Toe” Tennis Tournament takes place every summer. The top players from Pentwater and Ludington compete in a stack ranked doubles format to earn the coveted “Broken Toe Trophy”, along with annual bragging rights. The event received its name back in the 1970’s, when Ludington player Jack Shillinger donated a new trophy but was unable to play because he broke his toe. A trophy was introduced for the women’s tournament in 2009, thanks to Lincoln Hills Club President Caroline Schwass. The annual event has been a summer fixture for almost 50 years.

The Pentwater team greatly appreciates the Ludington team’s willingness to host each year at the more expansive Schoenherr Tennis Center. We encourage all tennis fans to attend and cheer on their team.

The Ludington Daily News was kind enough to publish a story about how Pentwater & Ludington had split the trophy in 2021 and 2022. The match was rained out in 2023. Looking forward to 2024, the match will be played on July 6th at 8:00 AM (the rain date is July 13th).
