TENNIS -- Players Can Take Part In Greenock And District Tournament

The 2016 men’s singles champion Craig Williams from Ardgowan Tennis Club

LOCAL tennis players are being encouraged to enter the 69th Greenock and District tennis championships which take place next month.

The tournament is being held from Monday 17 July to Saturday 29 July, with matches taking place at Fort Matilda and Ardgowan tennis clubs in Greenock. The finals are at Fort Matilda on the evening of Friday 28 July and Saturday 29 July. 

In addition to adult events, there will be under-12, under-16 and under-18 boys and girls singles competitions. 

The clubs involved are Ardgowan and Fort Matilda in Greenock, and the tennis clubs in Bishopton, Kilmacolm and Largs. Players with a normal Inverclyde residential address who may be members of other clubs can also enter.

Announcing the 2017 Championships, the tournament organising chairman Chris Jewell said: "Tennis is at a high at the moment, aided by Andy and Jamie Murray’s successes, as well as Gordon Reid in wheelchair tennis and the rise in rankings of other British players both male and female. It is quite a thought to have three Scottish World Number Ones at the moment! 

"We also now have a head coach and development officer covering both Greenock clubs who is helping to increase membership levels. With that background, we are greatly looking forward to another very successful championships. We encourage all players from all the clubs involved to enter as many of the competitions as they can of these local championships which are sure to again provide many exciting matches."

The championships include men’s and ladies' singles and doubles plus mixed doubles, veterans’ singles and veterans’ men’s and mixed doubles as well as the junior events.
