Yakima had better get ready for some serious tennis this weekend at The Smash, Yakima's official day for tennis. I will be on hand to celebrate the opening of the new Yakima Tennis Club clubhouse, which was constructed after a fire leveled the old one last year.

Here's what's going down this Saturday (Aug. 22):
