The tournament honors Page who was 23 years old when he took his own life. He lost his battle with autistic-related disorders, depression and alcoholism. Swayze loved his family, the Dallas Cowboys, and playing tennis. He survived Kawasaki Syndrome at age 2 and he was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome in the third grade. He was the No. 1 player on the Mitchell High School tennis team for four years in a row.

“Please help us to bring awareness to suicide prevention while thinking of Mitchell Swayze and the game he loved,” organizers write on their website.
