Rain postponed quarterfinal action in the region tennis tournaments on Friday.

The Sunset Region quarterfinals will be played at 8 a.m. at both sites, with the Southern Region to follow at 10 a.m. and the Sunrise Region to play at noon.

The semifinals in all regions have been moved to Monday at Darling Tennis Center, and each region will play semifinals and finals on Monday.

The Sunrise Region will play its semifinals at 10 a.m. and its finals at 4 p.m., and the Sunset Region will have semifinals at noon and finals at 6 p.m.
