National 30’s Hardcourt Tournament Rolls into Kansas City

Sydney Hamilton | October 04, 2022

After a hot and humid summer, this fall weather is a welcome change–and it was perfect tennis weather during the National 30’s Hardcourts that took place September 30-October 2, 2022, at the Plaza Tennis Center in Kansas City.  The sun was shining, the air was crisp, and the competition was undeniably fierce.


This year’s tournament featured draws for Men’s 30 & Over singles and doubles, Women’s 30 & Over singles and doubles, and Mixed doubles, and the turnout was fantastic. All weekend long, players from all over the country hit the courts for hard-fought matches, hoping for a spot atop the leaderboard. 


One of the biggest draws of the tournament was the top seed in the men’s doubles draw. Local stars Anthony Perkins and Thiago Santos teamed up to form a star-powered duo that lived up to expectations.
