Albany -- Tennis players in Albany swing into action to spread breast cancer awareness.

It's the second year the Albany Tennis Association has hosted the event. This year's theme is "Serving up a Cure."

Players paid $20 to play at the Pine Forest Raquet Club for the charity event. All the money raised will benefit the Carlton Breast Health Center.

"Most everybody's been touched by someone with cancer before so it's a good way to honor them," said Becky Williams. "sot," said Donna Friedlander.

"The ladies must go, get a mammogram. It's a yearly thing, and there's so many that we speak to, 'Have you gone yet? Oh no I've forgotten about it," said Donna Friedlander.

Organizers say tennis is a lifelong sport and breast cancer help should be a lifelong commitment.
