The Yonahlossee Racquet Club situated between Boone and Blowing
Rock expects to attract more than 225 senior (ages 35 - 75) tennis
players from the Southeast for the 19th Annual Gladys Hackworth
Tournament. In 2004, the tournament was recognized as NC Tournament
of the Year. Gladys and Bob Hackworth, who are part-time NC
residents, will again be Presenting Sponsors. For the past several
years, the tournament has raised money to benefit Watauga County
Habitat for Humanity. This worthwhile charity serves the High
Country at the grass roots level to eliminate sub-standard housing
from the community. YRC is pleased to designate this organization
as our charitable beneficiary again this year. Hotels Official
