Published 12:08am Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Summer is upon us in Natchez, and the heat is starting to set in. The azaleas are in bloom, the crickets are chirping in the pleasant warm evenings, the days are long and people are active.

Baseball, tee ball and soon soccer will dominate the schedules of many families.

However, this weekend treat yourself to one of the best adult tournaments in Natchez.

The 34th annual Cancer Tennis Tournament will be in full force at Duncan Park Tennis Courts.

Last year, more than 100 players of all skill levels came to not only enjoy their beloved past time of tennis, but also support the tennis tournaments commitment to helping cancer patients by donating the proceeds to the American Cancer Society.

Over the long history of the Cancer Tournament it has become one of the most popular tournaments in our area.

People from all over Mississippi, Louisiana and beyond love to come to Natchez to soak up the culture, history and the friendship shared among fellow tennis players.

However, there is no need to feel excluded. You too can be a part of this fun and beneficial event.

Playing will begin Friday afternoon and continue until the best of the best have been determined Sunday afternoon.

Saturday there will be a players party at Riparian Retreat on the banks overlooking the Mississippi River.

If you would like to participate in making the Natchez Cancer Tennis Tournament a bigger and better success than it has in years past, please send a request to play to shogue@callon.com by Wednesday.

Don’t miss a chance to help yourself through recreation and to help your fellow man by participating in a worthy cause and tournament.
