It’s still not too late to register for the ninth annual Greater Urban Pro Tennis Classic, conducted by Youth and Tennis, Inc., a tennis organization based in Jamaica.

The men’s singles and doubles tournaments are scheduled to be take place on the hardcourts of Cunningham Park in Fresh Meadows with night matches at nearby Liberty Park in Jamaica, starting the last weekend of June.

Cash prizes will be awarded in this open tournament that could help a player’s rankings.

Over the years the tournament has drawn outstanding college players from the nation, including those who live in the tri-state area, teaching pros, ranked players from the East, past high school champions and top high school players.

Teaching pro Tae Byon of Flushing, highly ranked high school player Faisal Mohamed of Lynbrook, Whitestone’s Joe Gravagna, the tennis coach at Holy Cross, Kerner Ellie of Fresh Meadows, Zachary Gallin of East Setauket, Jamaica’s Jerry Neptune, Ron Nano of Great Neck and Sadik Sendich of Staten Island have played in the singles’ tournament in the past.

USTA rules will govern the tournament and some of the matches will be played under the lights. Tournament director Bill Briggs will make every effort to schedule matched during the day.

For more information or an application, call 718-658-6728.
