There are a lot of tennis activities happening in San Saba this summer. On Monday, June 14, there will be a fundraiser to help with the expenses to resurface the tennis courts. We will have a tournament beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the tennis courts. Divisions will be elementary, middle school, high school, and adult divisions. Play will be tie-breakers to 7, so matches will go quickly. Each division will play a round robin. Once you get to the semifinals a tie-breaker to 10 will be played. Events are boys, girls, adult men and women, singles, doubles, and mixed doubles. You may enter one, two , or three events. Cost is $10 per person per event. All proceeds will go to resurfacing the tennis courts.
