Winterbotham IC Junior Series Announcement - February 2018
To help develop tennis in the important younger age groups of 12 & under and 10 & under, the International Tennis Club (IC) of The Bahamas is organising a series of five tournaments at several top Bahamian tennis venues during 2018. The series is being sponsored by The Winterbotham Trust Company Limited.
Events will be full all day Saturday and Sunday weekend tournaments in round robin formats with at least three matches planned per participant per day. There will be both regular Yellow Ball and Green Ball events for boys and girls.
The IC motto is ‘Hands across the net, friendship across the ocean’. A light lunch is included for participants and this, together with the round robin format, is intended to foster a competitive group of young players with potential who can develop as a group of like-minded friends through future years.
The IC plans to make awards to the top players at the completion of the series to further develop their tennis.
The planned venues for the Winterbotham IC Junior Series are:
The entry fee is $25 for each event and juniors must take up BLTA membership ($10).
Entry forms will be available at the National Tennis Centre and other tennis venues in The Bahamas. The series is open to overseas players and their participation will be encouraged.
The main IC organising committee is Neil Mactaggart (359-0900), Kit Spencer (363-2930) and Mickey Williams (557-8307).
