Mission, Boys & Girls Club host 4th annual blind tennis tournament 

Sliding his feet and gliding the tip of his tennis racket across the court floor, Randy Vargas, 9, was positioning himself. He was feeling for the small cord taped to the Boys & Girls Club of Mission gym floor — the only way Vargas, who has been blind all his life, could know where he was on the court. The Mission native was one of the 19 players Saturday morning at the fourth annual Blind Tennis Tournament in Mission. Competitors came from across the Rio Grande Valley, Laredo and Reynosa to play.
