    MACE and LIFE put on the Gulf Coast Classic Wheelchair tennis tournament on the 19th and 20th. It was the first wheelchair tennis tournament in the state of Mississippi in 10 years! We had a great turnout even though it was bad weather most of the time. We had 14 participants in all letter divisions and over 50 people in attendance! It was a great event!
