“This is a really fun event and it's for a good cause,” said Dan Reida of Bass River Chiropractic, 833 Main Street, South Yarmouth who is sponsoring the event and providing prize monies, T-shirts and refreshments including pizza, subs and beverages. “If you have a tennis partner or teammates that think they are faster or more accurate than you - challenge them and see. Win or not, won't it be fun to see how fast the radar gun says you serve,” he said.
