Central Park tennis tournament entries open

Central Park Tennis Club is gearing up to host the next Wimmera Junior Points Tournament.

Players, under 18 years, can compete in singles and doubles in 12-and-under and 14-and-under girls or boys, and 15-and-older mixed categories.

The event is on Sunday, February 18 and entries close on February 16.

Central Park Tennis Club junior co-ordinator Sheree Shurdington said there was an event to suit any junior player wanting to participate.

“I really encourage the Match Play kids to have a go in the 10-and-under sections,” she said.

Play will start at 8.30am with doubles events played first, which is a round-robin competition.

Following these matches will be singles games in a knock-out competition.

Tournament director and Wimmera Regional Tennis co-ordinator Sandra Casey said she was looking forward to seeing some great tennis played after a successful tournament series beginning at Stawell Tennis Club and Horsham Lawn Tennis Club.

“Results from the points tournaments are used to help select players for the Wimmera representative teams at various regional team events competing against the best players in other regions, which is a great opportunity for our up-and-coming young players,” she said.

People interested in entering the tournament at Central Park can enter online via and search ‘Central Park’.

Donald Lawn Tennis Club will host the final tournament of the season on March 3.
