The Morganton Recreation Department this week is holding its annual end-of-season open tennis tournament at the Collett Street Recreation Center courts. 

Singles and doubles play in the event will be each day Monday through Friday, with players available to register through Tuesday at 5 p.m. There is no cost to register.

Play will be at staggered between starting times of 8:30 and 11 a.m. each day. (Regular tennis lessons will still be available for those signed up from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. this week.)

Participants in the tournament will be assigned to brackets based on their skill level starting at age 8 up to 18. Players under age 10 will play on smaller, blended-line courts and will play 8-game pro sets.
