Nunnelee Tournament approaching

Wednesday, May 28, 2003

SIKESTON -- The 13th Annual Ed Nunnelee Memorial Tennis Tournament will take place this weekend at the Sikeston High School and Sikeston Country Club tennis courts.

The tournament held an organizational meeting on Tuesday night, where 109 early entries were turned in. The signup deadline is on Thursday night.

"At this point, we've really got a good turnout going," said organizer Tom Nunnelee. "We had 85 at this point last year, so we're running about 20 or more ahead. More people are still welcome to sign up, especially junior players. We would love for more to come out and participate."

The tournament will start with junior play on Friday at 8:30 a.m. Adults will begin on Saturday at 8:30 a.m. The entry fee is $12 per singles player and $16 per doubles team.

Those interested can phone entries to Bill Bradley at (573) 472-3753, Lee Shell at (573) 471-4188, Joe Childress at (573) 471-7160 or Greg Colwick at (573) 471-5888.
