WATCH: Tennis champions' special message to the stormy skies
IT MAY be the first tennis championships Warwick has held in 12 years, but there's a bigger prize competitors have been keeping an eye on today.
With dark storm clouds brewing over the town, players put down their balls and raised their rackets in the hope of attracting some much-needed rain to our drought-stricken region.
"We all want it to rain, that's for sure," Warwick and District Tennis Club president Nathan Costello said.
The weather could throw a spanner in the works with men's and women's finals just about to start, but Mr Costello said getting rain was more important.
Should all things go to plan, Coby Imber will go up against Sarah Spiller in the women's singles final this afternoon.
Ms Spiller will defend her sister's title as the female champion of the last tournament held in Warwick in 2006.
"This kind of tournament is competitive but it's social as well," Mr Costello said.
"It's a really good family day."
