On Sunday, the championship tournament takes place from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 437 E. 20th St., Costa Mesa, at the neighboring residences owned by Clay Peterson and Johnny McCray, who combine their yards for a fantastic venue.
Peterson and McCray both lost a loved one to cancer, and formed the annual backyard tennis tournament to raise funds in the fight against cancer. The day's festivities include a fabulous silent auction, a photo booth and area for kids to play. The annual closing reception is at 8 p.m. at A Restaurant, 3334 W. Coast Hwy., in Newport Beach.
Spectator admission costs $27, children 12 and younger are admitted for $10. VIP tickets are $151, or $127 in an online presale.
