Once again, the Franklin open tennis tournament was a huge success raising over $1,100
for the FHS boys and girls tennis teams.
The number of players increased over last year and the weather was favorable. Cool
temperatures on Friday night, June 6th helped get things off to a big start. By
6:00 PM, the courts were filled with singles players and doubles teams competing
in the single elimination tournament. Play continued Saturday morning at 9:00 AM
with former and current high school players competing along with experienced and
savvy adult players. We saw several third set match tie breakers showing the competitiveness
of the tournament.
Even though this was another successful event financially for the FHS Tennis programs,
perhaps even greater is the competitiveness, sportsmanship and friendliness displayed
by all participants which makes our tournament desirable to return to year after
year. Again, special thanks to the players, sponsors, individual donors & Macon
County Recreation Department for supporting FHS tennis.
