Tennis – Girls SHG Tournament Information for Parents

Sacred Heart Central Illinois Invitational
Saturday, Sept. 5 – Springfield
The tournament is played at several sites in Springfield. All of the doubles will be played at Washington Park (directions below). The finals and some of the 3rd place matches for the other divisions will also be played at Washington Park.
The coaches meet at 8:00 for information.   The players are then transported to the various sites, and play will begin immediately, usually around 8:45-9:00 am.
It is an all-day tournament and though it’s tough to predict when tournaments will end, in the past we have arrived back in Metamora approximately 7:00 pm.
