Five days of Ojai tennis have once again come to a close.

The 116th iteration of The Ojai Tennis Tournament brought more than 1,200 players to town, according to Steve Pratt, chairman of marketing for the tournament.

“If you have a court in Ojai, it was used during the tournament,” said Pratt.

Though the main events took place at Libbey Park, The Ojai Valley Inn and The Ojai Valley Athletic Club, tournament play spanned the county. In addition to courts in Ojai, competitors played in Ventura and Oxnard — 60 courts in total, according to Pratt.
