The 12th annual United States Tennis Assn. national father and son hardcourt doubles championships open today at the Newport Beach Tennis Club.
Tournament director Norma Veal said 34 teams are entered in this year's event, which runs through Sunday.
There are 21 super senior teams (fathers age 70 and older) and 13 senior teams (fathers ages 60-69).
Among the teams participating are Corona del Mar resident Scott Davis and his father, Gordon Davis, who won their fifth tournament title in six years by defeating James and Paul Settles, 6-4, 7-5, in the final of the super seniors division last year. Scott and Gordon Davis are the No. 1 seed in the super seniors division.
In the seniors division, last year's champions, Newport Beach resident Michael Carter and father Allan Carter, return to defend their title, but as the No. 8 seed.
