Wilton Y platform tennis tourney on March 15

The 31st annual Wilton Y Platform Tennis Tournament will take place on Saturday, March 15, at the Wilton YMCA and 11 other venues in Fairfield County.

This year’s tournament will feature a record number of participants: 64 men's teams (Open Draw and B Draw) and 32 women’s team. That’s 96 duos in all and a Ladies Draw that has doubled in size from its debut a year ago.

The Men's Open Draw will feature five of the top 10 nationally ranked players, including 2013 Wilton Open defending champion and Wilton Y member Mark Parsons, currently the top-ranked ranked in the nation. His partner from a year ago, Maurice Sanchez, also will return.

A local steel drum ensemble, the Wilton Steel Band, will provide entertainment at the event, which also includes a barbecue lunch at the Wilton YMCA.
