Reid is back in Camilla

June 13, 2003

The Camilla Pro Tennis Invitational may have the reputation of being one of the premiere senior events in the nation but it doesn't beat playing in Monte Carlo.

Former national doubles champion Horace Reid missed last year's Camilla tournament because he was playing in Europe.

Horace Reid is back playing in Camilla this weekend after turning down the chance to play a tournament in Spain this year.

 The former UCLA great did not want to run the risk of losing one of the coveted invitations in the Camilla tournament.

 Reid, who is currently the director of tennis at the Cross Creek Country Club in Atlanta, has been a member of two championship teams in Camilla.

 Reid says he loves the fact that all the players manage to keep their cool during the heat of battle on the tennis court.

Horace Reid said "It's exciting because it kind of brings you back to the old days and you kinda of know all these guys and it is good cameraderie and it is just a great time to come down and play some tennis and not actually be at each other's throat all the time but just some good competition."

 Horace Reid is playing for the Fab Foster Fives who won their match against the Lites, 2-1.

The Genunine Draft team beat the Leine Lock squad 3-0.

The afternoon matches though were rained out. The championship match is at one o'clock on Sunday.
