One of the most aggravating aspects of playing tennis is swinging at the ball and watching it go sailing right by you. Thankfully (or unthankfully, depending on whose opinion you ask), Wii Tennis removes the difficulty of playing with actual equipment, and UPB is hosting a Wii Tennis Tournament at Adelbert Gym. Competitive and non-competitive courts will both be set up, and those who truly excel in the virtual Wimbledon can win prizes! Time: 10:30 p.m. - 1:30 a.m. Cost: Free. Location: Adelbert Gymnasium.

Time: 8 p.m. Cost: $10 advance, $12 at the door. Location: The Grog Shop. Contact:
