Creed Campbell // Jon Campbell, the father of our little Creeder, wanted to share his memory and give back. With this motive he developed the idea to pair one of Creed's favorite activities, tennis, to benefit an organization that helped him survive for 7 years and heal countless other children.
Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta [CHOA] was a large part of Creed’s life from the start and he made many special friends there along the way. The many doctors, nurses, techs and support staff allowed our little man to be with us for more than 7 years.
Open to 80 participants. Multiple rounds are played for 2 hours, 4 to 8 games per round are played depending on the number of participants. No-Ad scoring is used. Each round, participants turn in their scores. Award winners are determined by the total number of games won.
This event will be fun to attend even if you don’t plan to play. Every paid spectator is provided with food, drink and an event t-shirt as well as knowing you are helping a great cause.
We’re hoping that this year’s first annual InCREEDible tennis tournament will be a great success and will become a fun event that everyone plans to enjoy for years to come. We appreciate your support in spreading the word and filling up those 80 available player spots.

About Creed // A little bit about our Creeder who continues to touch so many lives today.
Creed entered this world 11 weeks earlier than expected. Weighing only 2lbs, he had a lot of catching up to do. He arrived home after 91 days in the NICU only to return back to the hospital for another extensive stay. This seemed to be the beginning of what his life would be like.
For the next 5 years it was just that, in and out of the hospital. Never knowing what the root of the problem was. Always treating the symptoms, but never being able to figure out really what was going on.
In January of 2010, we found out that Creed had a blood disorder called Myelodyplasia/Monosomy 7. The only treatment for this was a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. In August of 2010, Creed underwent intensive chemotherapy and total body irradiation in preparation for the transplant. The next 7 months were spent at Egleston Children’s Hospital. He was completely cured from the disease after the transplant, but did encounter many issues that were again unexplainable. These issues eventually caused him to earn his wings at age 7 on April 15, 2012.
Creed never let this life get him down and was a fighter until the very end.
