Tennis Showdown slated Jan. 23 at Bratton Center


WALLA WALLA -- The Whitman College women's tennis program is hosting a One-Day Campus Showdown on Jan. 23, in the Bratton Indoor Tennis Center.

The women's tournament, which includes singles and doubles brackets, is open to juniors (high school players), collegians and adults.

The Whitman event is one of many such tournaments being held around the country as part of the U.S. Tennis Association program to bring more junior players onto college campuses and forge stronger ties between college programs and local communities.

The Whitman showdown starts at 9 a.m. with the singles bracket. Doubles will follow.

Because of time constraints, each match will be limited to one five-game set (tie-break at 5-5).

Whitman women's tennis coach John Hein is the contact for entries. Hein can be reached by phone (509 527-5262) or e-mail (

The entry fee is $10 for singles and $5 per player for doubles.
