PHILADELPHIA – Now that the fall season is underway, it’s time for the University of Pennsylvania men’s tennis team to host the 3rd Annual Penn Invitational this weekend on the Hamlin Tennis Courts located in Penn Park. The courts in the Levy Tennis Pavilion will also be utilized as 16 teams total will partake in the tournament. Action is set to begin at 9 a.m. on Friday morning with play continuing through Sunday.
