GLADSTONE'S major tennis tournament of the year is not all sweat and tears, with the club putting on a free music night for all to enjoy.

To lessen the competitive edge, local guitarist Alex Matheson-Brown will perform at the Gladstone Tennis and Squash Clubhouse from 6.30pm, performing a mix of covers and original tracks.

Centre manager Rob McBean said the entertainment, which is open to both members and non-club members, was a way of bringing the players together and a chance to catch up with old friends who have been coming to the tournament for years.

He said competitors from Brisbane and all over central Queensland travelled to participate in the 2014 Rio Tinto Alcan & QAL Gladstone Open, which began today.

The competition wraps up on Monday, with the winner of the men's and women's adult divisions taking home $1200, and runners-up set to gain $600 from the tournament.
