Posted: Updated:

DECATUR - Decatur Park District officials say a new event is coming to a popular central Illinois tennis tournament.

Officials say the USTA/Ursula Beck Pro Tennis Classic will feature a new event known as the Wilson Burn challenge.  Wilson employees will measure serves, ground strokes, and footwork of players from around the world with the help of a new racket that has a built-in Sony Smart Tennis Sensor.

The sensor will help measure ball speed, swing speed, the type of swing used, and ball impact spot.  All participants in this event will be entered to win a free Wilson Burn tennis racket.  This event will take place at the Fairview Tennis Complex at 5:30 p.m. on August 5.
