South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Florence County Photos | Dr. Eddie Floyd Tennis Center
This state-of-the-art tennis center in Florence opened in July of 2011 as a grant project of the Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation. The foundation was formed in 1995 following the sale of the Carolinas Hospital System with a mission “To advance the general welfare and the quality of all life in the Florence, South Carolina area and the surrounding region by providing economic support to qualified programs and non-profit organizations.”
The complex includes 24 asphalt courts and six clay courts for both tennis enthusiasts and professionals. The center recently hosted the 2014 McLeod for Health Florence Open, won by 2014 International Tennis Federation Junior World Champion CiCi Bellis from San Francisco. The complex will again be hosting the United States Tennis Association’s Women’s Pro-Circuit competition during October of 2015.
The tennis complex offers clinics and instruction to players of all levels as well as an after-school outreach program for local youth. A study area for students is provided within the 5,000-square-foot activity center. Florence is also home to the Freedom Florence Recreational Park.
The tennis center is named for Dr. C. Edward Floyd, chairman of the Doctors Bruce and Lee Foundation.
