Civic League tennis tournament set for July 13, 14

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

The Greencastle Civic League will host its third annual Junior Tennis Tournament on July 13 and 14 at the DePauw University outdoor courts. The event is open to kids between the ages of 5-18.

All participants will receive a T-shirt and a medal, and there will be trophies for age-division winners and runners-up.

All ability-levels are welcome, and beginners are especially encouraged to sign up, as tournament volunteers will help the younger participants start the point and keep score. Kids aged 10 and under will play on Saturday morning and should be finished around 11 am.

Other age divisions will play throughout the day on Saturday and on Sunday if needed. High school and middle school players will be guaranteed at least two matches, as there will be a consolation round.

The tournament is a fundraiser for the Splash Park project for the Civic League. All proceeds from the tournament will go directly toward this project.

The early bird entry fee for singles is $12 and $15 per doubles team. Early bird registration ends on June 30.

After June 30, the entry fee is $17 for singles and $20 per doubles team. The deadline for registration is July 6.

All players are required to bring a new can of tennis balls (any brand) as part of the registration fee as well.
