Hoodline: Pro Tennis Tournament, Free Night at Exploratorium and other weekend fun

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- This weekend we're calling on all sports fans & science nerds!

See a Pro Tennis Tournament

You can see a professional tennis tournament in the East Bay! It's part of the USTA pro circuit. You won't see the sport's biggest names, like Serena Williams, but you'll see the rising stars. Head out to the Berkeley Tennis Club.

"It's very close to some of the highest levels you'll see on television and you will see some of the future stars here," says tournament director Morton Christensen.

The Berkeley Tennis Club Challenge is part of a series of tournaments in the U.S. that will award a wild card entry into the U.S. open, so it's a big deal!

"See the physicality, the speed of the ball, and see it very up close up," says Mylene Mukhar with the USTA Northern California.

The tournament starts Sunday, July 15 2018 and lasts a full week. The public is welcome at the club.
