The winners of Precision Eye Care’s annual community tennis tournament weren’t just the players on the courts. Farmington (FHS) and North County (NCHS) high school tennis programs were also winners when Dr. John Fitz presented each coach with a check for $535 on July 6.
The tournament featured adult and junior players from Farmington, Bonne Terre, Desloge, Park Hills, Fredericktown, Ironton, Pilot Knob, Mountain View, Chesterfield, St. Charles, Ste. Genevieve, Cape Girardeau, Jackson, Bloomsdale, DeSoto, Bismarck, Belleview, Festus and Houston, Missouri, as well as Indianapolis, Indiana and Green Cove Springs, Florida.
Dr. John Fitz and Precision Eye Care covered all expenses for player t-shirts, plaques, and ribbons, and donated all entry fees to the FHS and NCHS tennis teams for all expenses not falling under program budgets.
Precision Eye Care sponsors the only community tennis tournament in Parkland, and tournament director Julie Powers said it continues to attract players from across the state as well as from other states.

“It’s always fun to see who comes to town for this tournament because there’s so much fun on top of the competition,” she said.
Fitz said: “This tournament always brings the tennis community together in the best possible way. All levels of players can compete in a pleasant environment in a city that offers plenty of options when they are not on the courts. We hope to have even more players next year.
Next year’s tournament is scheduled for June 15-18.
