Some of the best professional tennis players in the world will gather in Mt. Lebanon for the Pro Circuit 15 tournament, which starts Monday, July 24. Half a dozen or so are looking for housing while they’re here.

“They’re young men, between 19 and 30, basically looking for a place to shower and sleep,” Hughes said.

Pre-Covid, a number of Lebo families volunteered to house players during the annual tournament. Many of them went on to become good friends.
