Play tennis for charity today


Phoenix Staff Reports

— Area tennis enthusiasts have a chance today beginning at 6 a.m. to raise funds for the American Red Cross local disaster relief fund through the “Okie Tennis Takes One to Reach One” benefit event at Spaulding Park.

From the start until 10 p.m., any player of any ability, including those in wheelchairs, can compete for a half-hour at a time and for each half-hour make a donation.  

The event was the inspiration of Ashley Newton of Muskogee, a tennis player at Victory Christian School.

Players can come at any time and begin competing.

For more information, dial (918) 781-9248.
