Sidelined by pandemic, Summer Smash tennis is coming back

Saturday, June 5, 2021

After COVID forced the cancellation of the Snohomish Summer Smash in 2020, the tennis tournament for high school players is returning for its sixth year from July 22 through 25, 2021 at the Snohomish High School courts. 

Registration costs are $30 for Singles players and $50 for Doubles and Mixed Doubles teams, with proceeds going to the Snohomish High School tennis programs.

Tournament Director Kraig Norris, in conjunction with the Snohomish High School coaches, formed the tournament in 2015 to counter the lack of competitive options for players who aren’t registered with the US Tennis Association. 

Reaching out to six tennis clubs and over forty high schools throughout the region, Norris said the feedback he’s received from coaches and players is one of excitement at this opportunity to compete. 

 “We lost an entire year of organized tennis,” Norris said, “the girls’ high school season was wiped out in 2020, and for two years players have been denied the chance to compete at State. We hope to provide them some exciting tennis in a fun environment.”

Registration deadline for the tournament is July 16th, and players interested in participating can go to for a printable registration form, or to register online.
