Minnesota tennis is going to the fair! Both men's and women's programs will be taking part in the "Great Minnesota Get Together" this week and the Minnesota State Fair.

On Thursday, Aug. 30, the Gophers will be on the University of Minnesota stage, outside of the U of M building on the corner of Dan Patch Avenue and Underwood Street.

Members of each team will be available for a 30-minute question-and-answer session with fans and fair-goers. The women will take the stage from 1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m., while the men will follow later from 2:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Women's head coach Chuck Merzbacher will be joined by juniors Emilie Renault and Pauline Gilbert, and sophomore Julia Courter to talk about the 2012-13 season and answer your burning questions.

Junior Juan Pablo Ramirez and sophomores Mathieu Froment, Tucker Saxon, and Leandro Toledo, along with assistant coach Urban Ljubic, will represent the men's program.
