Tennis tourney awards $325,734 to hospital

        The Cincinnati Tennis Masters Series tournament presented Children's Hospital Medical Center with a check for a record $325,734.

        Another $36,500 was given to the Cincinnati Recreation Commission with proceeds from the Seniors event and ATP Tour Charities.

        The Tennis Masters Series Cincinnati has now donated more than $4.6 million to the medical center since 1974, and a total of more than $250,000 to CRC, which uses the money for equipment and lessons for children who could not otherwise afford to learn to play tennis.

        “I can't think of a better way to cap off one year and start another,” tournament chairman Paul Flory said.

        This year's event is Aug. 2-12 at the ATP Tennis Center in Mason.
