62nd Palmetto Championships
May 25 - 19, 2018 (...Continued Article)

ActionDuring the Palmetto Fling on Saturday night Jon Holmes with Chick-fil-A of Anderson was named the tournament's Honorary Chairman. The award is not presented every year and is given to someone who had made a substantial contribution to the success of the Palmetto Championships. Chick-fil-A of Anderson has been a long time sponsor of the tournament and the title sponsor since 2011.

Tournament Chairman Rex Maynard had this to say: "I've been involved with the Palmetto since 1976, and I've never experienced this much rain during the tournament. It took a combination of hard work and good luck to finish what we did. We appreciate the efforts and patience of our staff and the players, coaches and parents. We would have never gotten it done without their cooperation and patience. Fortunately Saturday and Sunday were nice days, and once we got the courts dry Saturday morning we were rolling. Escalating the schedule Sunday based on the Monday forecast really saved us. It was only fitting that the tournament ended just as the rain began to fall again!"
