Highly recommend the Racquet War Tennis Tournament, especially after we had a fabulous experience with the facilities, groomed tennis courts and resort amenities. Very well organized and the food was excellent along with pictures and towel gift. If you want to play tennis for fun or competitively this is the place to play and/or party with friends (aka girls weekend!!! : ) This is my 2nd year attending and it just gets better.

I just had one of the best weekends of tennis ever! My three friends and I participated in the Racquet War this past weekend at Amelia Island, Florida. The tournament was so well run and the competition was great. I met so many wonderful people and many new friends. It exceeded all my expectations! Shelly and Oakley were so nice and made it a pleasure to play. The food was great and the price for lodging was such a bargain. I will be back next year for sure.

We didn’t win that trophy I was hoping for but we had a lot of fun. We are already talking about going back next year and bringing more people. Your crew was great to work with and your organization was fantastic.

Randa Craig

Thank you so much. I had a blast. Didn’t come home with a trophy but met and played against marvelous ladies. The venue was spectacular. We had the pasta buffet which was fabulous and then ate locally in Indian Wells at the Cliff House. Met wonderful new friends. You did a terrific job organizing this. The Omni was one of the best resorts I’ve stayed at especially the prices. It was so fun and I’m sure I’ll see you guys next time with more local friends. Thanks again for all of your hard work. I’ve organized affairs such as this. and I know it isn’t easy. You made it seem seamless.

There is nothing like playing a tournament that is extremely organized and well thought-out…this is what I experienced while playing in the tournaments run by Shelly and Oakley this past year. The competition was strong, the atmosphere was fun and the flow of play-time was smooth. What more could you ask for? Oh yeah, the cute women’s cut t-shirt and the MatchPoint event are musts!

Sherrie Nischwitz

Both Carrel and I had a blast. We look forward doing it again maybe in May, but if not, definitely same time next year. The event was ran very professionally with no hitches. The level of tennis was not only top notch but we made a few friends along the way that we will be playing doubles with. Thank you for a great weekend. We can’t wait til the next one.

What an amazing tournament! Attending my first tournament, I wondered if the price would be worth it. I coudn’t be more wrong! Not only are Shelly and Oakey personable and a joy to be around, their tournament is unbeatable! This tournament has it all…competition of all levels combined with fun, happy participants, gifts, trophies, booze, snacks, the gifts are endless. Best girls tennis trip to date. We have already planned our next few. Keep up the good work.

It was pleasure meeting you. KUDOS to you both for organizing a FANTASTIC tournament! We had THE BEST weekend and can’t wait to come back next year. Many thanks again for bringing Racquet War to Southern California.

Tampa was my first Racquet War tournament and I really hope I will be fortunate enough to play in many more. The event was very well organized and the format worked really well. There was plenty of tennis for everyone and it was really obvious that we were all there purely for the love of the game. There was a lot of energy! Oakley and his team did a fab job keeping things moving along and letting you know where you needed to be! The Saddlebrook Resort was a good choice of venue. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the amenities of the hotel were ideal for such an event. Overall a great time! I’m already looking forward to the next one.

The Racquet War Tournament in Amelia Island was my second one and even better than my first. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a weekend of well-organized tennis that is set up to assure you get to play lots of tennis with opponents who are as close to your level as possible. Both Oakley and Shelly were gracious hosts and were genuinely concerned that everyone has a wonderful time. Amelia Plantation was a beautiful venue, and with lunch on the grounds, and an air conditioned room for all players to relax between matches, it was a wonderful weekend. If you are on a tennis league this tournament would be a great way to get your team together and spend a weekend together playing and great tennis and also staying at the Omni Hotel.


The site was fantastic and the housing and proximity to the courts was excellent. Well worth the money. The courts were very nice and the pro-shop was great too. Your staff was very kind and welcoming. The flow of the tournament was terrific. It was very well organized. I love the computer program you use and would love to see that at USTA tournaments. It was so effective. As well done as everything was, the spirit of all the participants was joyous. I think that is the most important part of the experience and you set that tone. I think I have new life long friends. The Craft’s from Villanova PA and Penny and Lynn from Hilton Head. The Hilton Head group was so much fun. Now that I know you have mixed, I’d love to bring my husband. It would also be a great trip for my grown daughters and I. I thought the pricing was great. That made it easy to buy things from the pro shop and enjoy Charleston without breaking the bank. Congratulations on a job well done. I know the entire Vero Beach crew was impressed!

This is our 10+ Racquet War tournament with you two. You and Shelly have completely out done yourself on this one. The Rancho Mirage venue at the Omni Las Palmas was the bomb. Talk about a bucket list item. The tennis staff at the Omni were completely accommodating and we have to tip our racquets to them for wearing many hats during the tournament. Not sure how you organized 350 folks over 25 courts ….and made it operate efficiently and on-time, but y’all did it. The automated texts and emails were a cut above any other tournament we have ever been in. (The USTA doesn’t hold a candle to you two!) The tennis was awesome and afforded us to meet other “tennis addicts” who we now call friends! They all agreed, that win or lose, meeting like-minded folks who like to compete in a fun-friendly environment is very unique. Social tennis with people of similar abilities makes for a great time (thanks to your Waterfall draw). Matter of fact, we’ve exchanged numbers and already have some future events planned….all thanks to Racquet War. Aside from the tennis, we did so many other things. We visited the Palm Springs Aerial Tram (#1 on TripAdvisor), went to Indian Wells Tennis Stadium (amazing), and we even took in a round of golf at the Omni. I’m not a golfer, but the 3 nine hole courses were just too beautiful to pass up. Thanks for pulling all the strings and making this happen. We’re still pinching ourselves. Oh, here our pictures to prove that we aren’t just making all this stuff up… Pictures. Great job and we will see you again.

I have played in countless tennis tournaments over the years. Racquet War is undoubtedly my new favorite tournament!! The tennis competition was great and the tournament management was even better! Can’t beat the price for what you get!

Jerry Cutchens

I love your tournaments. I have to say Bahamas is my favorite. You and Shelly are always amazing to hang out with and that doesn’t even touch what an well organized and fun tournament you host. The format is perfectly designed to always ensure competive tennis. Its wonderful being able to play with any level partner, so Todd and I can travel together to these beautiful locations. A little tennis mixed with a perfect vacation.

Jennifer Higgins~ NC

Congratulations on a fabulous tournament! It was a beautiful venue, great play, fun atmosphere, good sportsmanship – everything you’d want! Oakley and Shelly were so well organized, handled the conditions with grace, and had a great sense of humor. The txting for matches, the gifts, lunch, ect are more than we could expect even for the price. I hope the high entry price price doesn’t scare anyone away, it is well worth it!

Lynn Kitt - Denver, CO

Thank you for organizing such a fun weekend. Every opponent we played was so nice! Your team of pros and of course you and Shelly were great. It reminded me why I fell in love with tennis in the first place.

Janet Coleman

Racquet War in Tampa was my first-ever tournament …. and what a blast it was! It was organized so well, all the matches seemed to run smoothly and the people on and off the courts were terrific. Saddlebrook Resort was the perfect setting to play, relax and meet some wonderful “”tennis people””. Sign me up for next year!

Toni Santoro

Although I don’t play in many tournaments throughout the year, I find the Racquet War event that Oakley and Shelly put on to be excellent. Between being extremely well organized, combined with a strong pool of competition it makes it one I will be keeping on the calendar in the future. If you have not played in one of their tournaments and you are a tennis enthusiast, I would highly recommend signing up for one. What a great way to spend a fall weekend doing something you love!
