TOOWOOMBA SET TO SERVE UP TENNIS FEAST

-

TENNIS: Don’t let the “veterans” tag fool you this weekend.

The 56th Toowoomba and District Veterans tournament is strictly for the over-30s and beyond, but the standard and quality of play will be high.

More than 100 players from across Queensland will be on court at Toowoomba Tennis Associatio­n’s James Street facility, and matches will also be played at Holy Name today and tomorrow.

“We’re very pleased to be hosting our annual veterans’ tournament again,” TTA president Allen Smythe said.

“We had very good feedback from players last year, and it’s good to see a lot of them returning.

“Last year’s tournament was so popular we needed to move play to other courts in Toowoomba, so we’ve made the decision in advance to have a number of games at Holy Name this year.”

There will be singles and doubles play in tournament in age divisions ranging from over30s through to over-70s.

“It’s going to a good weekend of tennis,” Smythe said.

“We’re expecting some very good players from across the state to be involved, and we’d love for the public to attend.”

Play begins at 8am each day before a brief lunch break – Covid safety protocols are in place for players and spectators.
