(KSL News) Some of Utah's most talented tennis players hit the court today.

More than 100 children and adults attended the Wallace Stegner Tennis at the University of Utah's Eccles Tennis Center for the 14th annual Wallace Stegner Symposium.

The event included on-court games and activities for children and adults, a wheelchair exhibition, the University of Utah men's and women's varsity tennis teams, and lunch.

These tennis champs served, slammed and scored like pros; and they didn't even break a sweat.

The event was sponsored by by Chevron and the Utah Tennis Association. Event sponsors said they wanted to show kids they could overcome any disability to be the best at what they choose to do.

Johnson, manager of public affairs for Chevron, said, "Oh they're fabulous. You know, I would really hate to beat them. I think they'd beat me!"

The event was in celebration of Wallace Stegner's life, legacy and love of tennis.
