SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - More than 60 wounded veterans have gathered in San Diego for the fourth annual National Wounded Warrior Tennis Camp.

The tennis camp will be held at Balboa Tennis Club.

The event started as an event for local wounded veterans, and has now grown to give vets from all over the country a chance to play in San Diego.

"This year for the first time we received more applications than we could accommodate at this camp. So we're looking for ways to accommodate everyone as we go forward. Maybe by offering this event more than once a year," said Steve Kappes. 

The four-day tennis camp is offered at no-cost to participants. Sponsors cover everything from airfare to hotel rooms and lessons.
