ZEPHYR COVE — Now in its 32nd year, the Tahoe Tennis Classic has become so popular that it’s expanded to be a four-day tournament. This year’s edition will be played at Zephyr Cove Tennis Club beginning Thursday, July 30.

The all doubles event at ZCTC features teams from across the country as well as those from the Tahoe Basin and Reno areas. In previous years, more than 100 teams participated in women’s, men’s and mixed doubles.

The levels of play include two combined men’s age group divisions: men’s century (100-plus) and men’s super century (130-plus). Unrestricted age divisions include women’s 10.0 (A+), 9.0 (A), 8.0 (B) and 7.0 (C), men’s 10.0 (A), 8.0 (B) and 7.0 (C) and mixed 10.0 (A), 8.0 (B) and 7.0 (C).

The entry deadline is next Monday. The fee is $70 per player for the first event and $30 for the second, and includes a player dinner party on that Saturday, a raffle and a commemorative T-shirt. Everyone is guaranteed a minimum of two matches.

Complete information about the event and an entry form are available online at http://www.zctennis.com/tahoe-classic-tournament. The nonprofit Zephyr Cove Tennis Club Foundation is the tournament operator.

Zephyr Cove Tennis Club has six courts nestled in the woods overlooking Lake Tahoe that are open to the public. The club offers lessons for all ages, membership, social mixers and open play — it is located on Warrior Way off Highway 50 in Zephyr Cove. For more info, visit http://www.zctennis.com.
