TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of tennis players converged on the Reading Capital of the World on Sunday for the annual Rally for Reading tournament.

The tournament held at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton was all in an effort to raise money money to buy books for Tift County students.

Players paid $100 to play in the tournament that lasted all day.

Organizers say a wide variety of players participated.

"There's a 6-year-old who's only hit a few balls all the way up through adults who played college level tennis," said Moppy Brumby. "There's college level tennis players and everything in between. There's some down here from Atlanta who play in the alpha leagues up there."

The tournament was a round robin style, without an overall champion.

The ABAC tennis team partnered with the foundation for the event.
