Tennis event returns to Moraga Country Club
Moraga Country Club's annual $25,000 tennis tournament, which attracts everyone from locals to satellite pros, will get under way Aug. 7 with finals scheduled for Aug 12.
This is the 25th year the tournament and has been renamed The Heritage Bank of Commerce Tennis Championships. Formerly called the Stead Open, the event was not held last year due to the renovation of the Country Club's main building and swimming pool.
The major sponsor this year is Heritage Bank of Commerce, and the presenting sponsor is the Pine Grove Business Center in Orinda.
The tournament holds a full slate of tennis, with men's singles and doubles, women's singles and doubles, as well as mixed doubles.
Admission is free throughout the week. Competition starts at 9 a.m. Tuesday morning with semis on Saturday and finals on Sunday.
