PROVO - Members of the BYU men's tennis team will compete against players from Utah State, Weber State and Utah this weekend in the Utah Intercollegiates tournament in Salt Lake City.

"This is the first competition after practicing for a few weeks," BYU head coach Brad Pearce said. "We're looking to see how we have improved and how the improvement holds up in match competition."

The tournament begins at 9 a.m. on Thursday at Coach Mike's Tennis Academy.

In case of inclement weather, competition will be moved indoors to the Eccles Tennis Center on the University of Utah campus.

Play will continue through Saturday with results available at Utah's website following each day of competition.

Spectators are welcome, and admission is free.
