The tournament has divisions from 16 and under to adult open, mixed doubles, plus the always popular parent/child division and is played in the evenings.

“We have good numbers in the boys and girls 16’s and 18’s plus the opens," Jesse said. "Robert Logan and I started this a while back and it has really grown into a big event. It is a fundraiser for Alton High tennis but we also created it as a fun way to give back to the game.”

Players wanting to sign up can contact Jesse Macias at or go to for a sign-up link.

Registration is taking place through June 9.
