Auburn Parks & Recreation to kick football festivals

The Auburn Parks & Recreation Department will host "Football Saturday Tennis Tailgates" this fall from 9 a.m.-noon at the City of Auburn/Auburn University Yarbrough Tennis Center.

The festivities will only be held on Auburn home football game days when the kickoff is at 6 p.m. or later.

Beginning with Auburn's Sept. 1 game against Kansas State, adults 19 years and older will be urged to get pepped for the game by playing doubles tennis for three hours before the game. Door prizes and refreshments will also be available.

The cost of admission is $20. For more information about the tailgate, call 334-501-2930.
