NorthBay Sponsors Tennis Tourney

Some of the best up-and-coming men’s professional tennis players in the nation will compete for the $100,000 purse in the NorthBay Healthcare Men’s Championship Oct. 7-15 at Solano Community College.

The tournament benefits the Dr. Chris Cammisa Tennis and Educational Foundation, an organization that supports the athletic teams at SCC and also introduces tennis and a related educational program to underserved youths in Solano County. It is the final leg of the worldwide ATP Challenger Tour’s swing through Northern California for 2017.

NorthBay Healthcare came onboard as the title sponsor this year, honoring the legacy of Dr. Cammisa, who served as its chairman in the department of family practice. He also was chief medical officer at Partnership Health Plan from 1999 to 2010 before his passing in June 2014.

Several NorthBay physicians will comprise the medical team that will staff the tournament.

The event features a Pro-Am Tournament where local players can team up with a professional in friendly competition.
