MONROE - Sign-up for the city singles tournament, the first of two summer tennis tournaments, is underway.

The city singles tennis tournament is slated for Saturday and Sunday. This is the 45th year of city tournaments sponsored by the Monroe Parks and Recreation Department.

The tournament is open to anyone and will offer four brackets. There will be a Class A men's bracket for intermediate to advanced players over 14; a Class B men's bracket for intermediate to beginner players over the age of 14; a women's open bracket for all women over 14; and a youth bracket for boys and girls 14 and younger.

The registration deadline is noon Wednesday. Once a bracket reaches 16 players, no more entrants will be allowed in that bracket. The entry fee is $12 for anyone older than 14, and $7 for 14 and younger.

To register or for more information, call or text tournament director Brad Saugstad at (608) 558-7666. Awards and tennis balls are furnished by the parks department.
