The Alton/Godfrey Closed tennis championships will run during two weeks at a pair of sites in June.
The singles part of the tourney is set for June 7-9 at the Alton High School courts. Meanwhile, the doubles championships will run June 29-30 at Lewis and Clark Community College in Godfrey.
Jesse Macias is serving as tourney director and said the new format will allow more players to participate. The tourney is for players who reside in Alton and Godfrey.
“We tried holding the singles and doubles at the same time and it didn’t work out,” Macias said. “We think this will benefit all the competitors. Players can compete in singles and doubles without playing three of four matches a day.”
He added, “We have players of all ages and skill levels. It’s a great community event.”
