Pro-Celebrity Tennis Saturday Session Time Adjusted

By Staff Report

DELRAY BEACH – The Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic will go on Saturday, with just a small time change.

Because of Hurricane Sandy, Saturday’s session will now be held from 1-4 p.m. Gates will open at 12:30 p.m.

“The rain and high wind gusts of the past 48 hours, and those forecasted for the next half day, have postponed the set-up of the site until these conditions subside,” : Lisa Franson, spokeswoman, said in a news release. “The safety of our staff and guests are our top priority.”

Sunday’s Pro-Celebrity session will remain as scheduled.

Friday’s Pro-Am, originally scheduled for the Boca Raton Resort & Club’s Tennis Center, has been moved to the Delray Beach Stadium & Tennis Center and will be played Sunday from 8-10 a.m. The session will be open to photographers to shoot B-roll and photos from 9-10 am (Courts 1-4 & 9-12)

Press credentials will be available at the Delray Beach Stadium & Tennis Center box office “Credentials” window starting at 12 noon on Saturday.
