According to the Utah Tennis Association, the Fiesta Days tournament is becoming one of the larger tennis tournaments in Utah County. A spokesperson said one reason for the increased popularity is the community's support. The majority of participants are Spanish Fork residents, but players have come from several states and a few foreign countries.

"The tournament in Spanish Fork is organized and well run," said Scott Dunn, a Spanish Fork resident who is participating in the Utah Summer Games Tennis Tournament. Dunn has also participated in several Fiesta Days Tennis Tournaments.

As a sanctioned tournament, players can qualify and earn ranking through the Utah Tennis Association. Players must show their U.S. Tennis Association membership card before their first-round match. Memberships are $25 for adults and $13 for juniors and will be available at the tournament desk.

The tournament will follow U.S. Tennis Association rules. Matches will be at Spanish Fork High and Salem City tennis courts. In case of inclement weather, matches will be at the Spanish Fork indoor tennis courts, 475 S. Main.
