QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - For Tri-State fans of the game of tennis, “The Gem City” will be the place to be this weekend as the annual Quincy Open Singles Championships gets underway. Matches actually started earlier today (Friday) at the Greeman Tennis Center at Reservoir Park in Quincy. The event organized by the Quincy Tennis Association usually draws the top amateur player throughout the city and the region to the GTC. We’ll have an update on the event, and the players who may be in the local sports spotlight in the next 48 hours.
On the Prospect League diamond this evening at QU Stadium, the Quincy Gems return home to play host to the (12-9) Alton River Dragons.
