The Summer Swing Tennis Circuit heated up in Mason last weekend as 100+ players played in 100+ temputures. Several Mason players played in the third leg of the Summer Swing Circuit Saturday and Sunday. The Summer Swing Circuit starts in Wimberley, then moves to Fredericksburg and Mason before ending in Hondo. Players from as far away as Dallas, Sherman, San Angelo, San Marcos, Abilene, Wellington (by Amarillo), made their way to Mason to play.

Singles was played on Saturday with all doubles playing on Sunday. There was lots of great tennis played by the kids. We had several state champions playing as well as several other players that played for a state championship last May.
