USTA Missouri held its second annual Santa Slam on December 8th at Cooper Tennis Complex in Springfield, Missouri. 


Six teams of 33 players had a great time playing each other in a round robin format over the course of the afternoon and then ended the event with a pizza party and prizes.   Prizes were given out to the winners of several categories:


Team winner of the event:  Santa’s Helpers (Zabelle Baron, Zomor Baron, Hunter Graham, Hally Short, Payton LaFevers, and Cameron Hull)


Team winner of best holiday attire:  The Alicorns (Alyssa Baban, Julia Baban, Brett Crockett, Logan Hylton, Brecken Barnhardt)


Most Valuable Family:  The Grahams


The Junior Team Tennis Santa Slam was a great success and be sure to look for the Winter Junior Team Tennis schedule to come out soon with another themed event scheduled.
