The Country Club of Landfall and BB&T bank have teamed up once again to host the Landfall Legends of Tennis event Sept. 13-15 to benefit a number of organizations, including the Miracle League of Wilmington, Make-A-Wish Foundation and the UNCW tennis program.

Country Club of Landfall’s own “Legend,” Charlie Owens is putting together an exciting list of Grand Slam players for the weekend, including: Monica Seles, Jimmy Arias, Will Bull, Bret Garnett, Luke Jensen and Renae Stubbs.

Legends play will include singles, doubles, and mixed doubles over the course of the three-day event to be held at the Sports Center in Landfall.

Seles highlights a list of more than a half-dozen accomplished tennis players that are scheduled to play in the tournament. Since her first professional match at the age of 15, Seles dominated the WTA Tour by winning nine Grand Slam Championships in singles. The American tennis great reached the world number one ranking in 1991 and won more than 50 WTA Tour Titles during her career. Seles was elected to the International Hall of Fame in 2009.
