Reviving an old favorite, this year marks the third tennis tournament for Aquafest since 2009.
All tournament matches are played at the LSHS courts which were recently resurfaced.
“I think everyone’s going to really like the new surface.” said Tournament Director Jon Brady. “We’ve restarted this tournament under the concept as a ‘community tournament,.”
“The goal is to get everyone who would like to have some fun and can hit a ball to come out and enjoy the weather and competition.” The tournament will be run mostly according to U.S. Tennis Association rules with some adjustments as the tournament is targeted less for the serious player.
“That’s not to say that we don’t have some serious tournament players entering,” said Brady. “Only that it’s not a USTA sanctioned event which means you don’t have to be a extremely formal. We get a lot of kids from the local high school teams entering the events which is great.”
The tournament offers a double elimination format with trophies for the winners. All proceeds from the tournament are donated to the LSHS Girls and Boys Tennis programs.
Entries close Saturday, July 16.
