Whew!!! The rain that passed through our area the past two days has ushered temperatures that feel more like early fall. I don't know about you, but to me this is the best time of year to attack the tennis court. It is also a great time to play tennis for good causes. There are a number of events scheduled for the Metro Atlanta area in the coming weeks. For instance, this Wednesday September 29th, the third annual Breast Cancer Round Robin will be played at the Wheatfield's Reserves Tennis Courts in Grayson. Registration and drills begin at 10am, with the Round Robin lasting from 11am to 1pm. The cost is 25 dollars, and there is also a dessert buffet and lunch, plus a truck sale.
