Thunder in the Mountains changes its to accommodate fans/soccer match


CHARLESTON — Tournament Director, Charleston Attorney, Rusty Webb announced today that Thunder in the Mountains, a Women’s Collegiate Tennis Tournament to be held at the Schoenbaum  Tennis Courts adjacent to the Kanawha City Recreation Center on September 23 to 25, 2022 will change its schedule so as to place the West Virginia universities in a prime time and better accommodate fan interest. 

“Since 2019, we have scheduled the Marshall vs. WVU singles matches on Sunday morning, the last day of the Tournament. We have determined that this is not a time conducive to bringing fans to the tournament. This year, the intra-state rivalry match will be played at “prime time” on Friday evening for two reasons: 

It’s a more convenient and cooler time for fans to attend and because the soccer match between Marshall and WVU will take place on Saturday night, we did not want to compete with that premier intra-state rivalry event,” said Webb. 

The singles match between WVU and Marshall is tentatively set for 7 p.m. on Friday, September 23rd. The time may change but it will definitely be played as the last group on Friday.
