The American Southwest Conference Singles/Doubles Championships will continue Saturday at UT Tyler.

Tennis teams in the ASC get an early-season look at each other during the two-day event played in Tyler. Over 200 tennis players from the ASC's 15 tennis-playing schools are in town for the event.

The 2005 ASC Singles/Doubles Championships will be a six-flight singles and three-flight doubles tournament format. The weekend's event is hosted by the University of Texas at Tyler, with tournament play conducted at UT Tyler, Tyler Junior College and the Tyler Tennis and Swim Club facilities.

The ASC Singles/Doubles Championships have been played in late February for several seasons, but was moved to the fall by request of the conference coaches.
