Baton Rouge, La. - The Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) men's and women's tennis programs are set to converge in Baton Rouge, La. for the first SWAC Tennis Round Up of the 2018 season.

The event will be held on Friday, February 23 and Saturday, February 24 hosted by Southern University and nearby locations. 

*Update* Rain on day one of the competition has pushed back play.  Revised start time on Saturday is 8:00 a.m.  

Due to impending rain in the forecast for Sunday, February 25, those scheduled matches will be played at a later date.  

The two-day event will be held at four different locations over the weekend: Highland Park Tennis Courts, Independence Park Tennis Center, Forest Park Tennis Center, and the Southern University Courts, which will serve as the main court for the tournament.

This round up will include seven men's teams and nine women's teams throughout the competition.

This first of two Round Ups will play a role in determining individual player honors on the All-Conference teams as well as the conference standings that will determine seedings for the 2018 SWAC Tennis Championships to be played April 13-14 at the Pepsi Tennis Center in New Orleans, La.

The top players in the league will earn spots on the All-SWAC team.

Here is the schedule for the Round Up:
