Tennis players from Greer, Riverside, Greenville and Wade Hampton practiced together this week to develop friendships and face different opposition.
Planned practices today and Friday were cancelled because the heat index was expected to be too high. A school trainer advised coaches the heat would be too severe to hold practices.
Mary Anna Elsey, Riverside tennis coach, said, "The purpose of this week was to promote tennis by bringing together four local teams."
Elsey said that the practices were not for competition, but for giving different schools' players a chance to play together and build friendships.
