The Bradshaw Tennis Tournament was named in honor of Dr. Ken Bradshaw, the first President of the Cottonwood Tennis Club, and is hosted annually in the Fall by the Cottonwood Tennis Club. The first Bradshaw Tournament was held in 1985 and was for men only. In 1988, the women began playing in the Bradshaw. This year (2017) will be the 33nd annual tournament.
