Co-captain is Dana Favrot. King and queen are John and Emily Favrot. Theresa and Chris Miller will serve as duke and duchess of peace; Bitsy and John Smith as duke and duchess of love; and Zach Favrot and Amanda Favrot as duke and duchess of harmony. Music included “The Sound 3 of Silence,” “Dancing in the Street,” “Mrs. Robinson,” “I Got You Babe,” “Unchained Melody,” “Whiter Shade of Pale” and “Age of Aquarius.” On stage, court members said such exclamations as “right on,” “groovy” and “far out.” The ball will be Jan. 26. – Mary Ann Van Osdell

An old Shreveport tradition, the City Tennis Tournament, is looking to get a new start, according to supporters at an Aug. 8 announcement. The tournament dates back to at least 1933 and was the premier annual gathering for area tennis players. Dormant now for almost 10 years, a group has banded and will hold their kickoff weekend tournament Aug. 17-19 at Bossier Tennis Center. Particular attention is being given to current efforts underway to revitalize Querbes Tennis Center. Shreveport has two players, Ryan and Christian Harrison, in the top 250 of all players in the world. The hopes are for a twiceannual event, one at Bossier Tennis Center, the other at Querbes. – Mary Ann Van Osdell
