A tennis tournament set for Sept. 28 at Roger Scott Tennis Center supports a drive to provide cozy new pajamas for children who have experienced abuse or neglect. 

 This is the fourth year that the tennis center has held the women’s doubles tournament on behalf of “Tucking Kids In Safe and Sound,” a campaign that collects new, unworn pajamas for children receiving services from FamiliesFirst Network of Lakeview Center, the organization responsible for foster care and related services for abused and neglected children in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton counties. 

 The pajama drive ends Oct. 11. 

 Registration for the tournament is $20 per player plus the donation of new, never-worn pajamas of any size, including adult sizes for larger children. The fee covers the cost of four matches, breakfast, lunch, drinks and snacks. 

 Register in advance. The tournament begins at 8 a.m. The Roger Scott Tennis Center is at 2130 Summit Blvd., Pensacola. Call (850) 912-4103 for details.
