Tennis tournament to be held Sunday

The Conanicut Yacht Club will host the fifth annual Roger Chase Memorial Mixed Doubles Tennis Tournament this Sunday, May 30, at its tennis facility on Whittier Road in Jamestown.

The tournament is open to the public and the club encourages local participation to honor the memory of Roger Chase, an English teacher at the Jamestown Elementary School and long-time island resident who spent many summers as a teaching tennis professional at the Conanicut Yacht Club.

Play is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. and run through the afternoon. The entry deadline is Friday, May 28, at 6 p.m. The draw will be limited to 16 teams, and an entry fee of $50 per team includes balls, prizes, food and drink.

The net proceeds of the tournament will be donated, as they have been each year, to the Jamestown Medical Fund.

White tennis attire and proper footwear are required.
