SKIDAWAY ISLAND, GA (WTOC) - The Landings Club on Skidaway Island is playing host to the Men's National Clay Court 40 and Over Championships.

It's the 22nd year they've hosted the tournament.  This year, players have come from as far as South America to compete for title.

Many of this year's participants have either played on the tour, or have competed on the collegiate level.

"Now they're just playing for pride," said tournament director Andrew Burrow.  "They love the game.  They want to stay involved with the game.  It's great for the sport."

The action on Skidaway Island will run through Thursday.
