Friends, family, teammates honor Tony Page with tennis memorial
Tony Page, the driving force behind Page’s Okra Grill in Mount Pleasant, was also an avid tennis player. And now a new backboard at Maybank Tennis Center will honor Page and his love of tennis.
Page passed away earlier this year. Friends, fellow tennis players and teammates from Mount Pleasant Recreation Center and Maybank Tennis Center gathered at Maybank Tennis Center on Nov. 5 to dedicate a new backboard in Page’s honor.
Page’s widow, Kelly Page, worked with the Charleston Parks Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that promotes Charleston parks, to coordinate fundraising and administration. The City of Charleston contributed the installation of the backboard. The 10-foot by 28-foot backboard cost $7,885.
