THE courts at the Mareeba Tennis Club will be full to the brim as the club hosts its annual Mareeba Mazda Club Tournament, bringing together clubs from across the region to compete over the coming weekend.
It will be non-stop tennis action across different ages and divisions with the only requirement being that players are members of a club affiliated with Tennis Queensland.
The tournament will begin on Friday with the newly introduced combined ages categories from 6.30pm until 9pm, there is a combined age over 100 and under 100 category.
Saturday at 4pm will see the start of the A grade and B grade doubles events, finishing at 8pm, while all the single matches for men and women, A grade and B grade will be played on Sunday from 2pm to 6pm.
Mareeba Tennis Club president Mark Keating said locals are more than welcome to come along and spectate the tournament over the three days.
“This competition is basically our club championship, so we crown our two club champions who win the male and female A grade singles division,” he said.
“The tournament has slowly been growing and I encourage anyone to come along and watch the games or even play themselves and be part of the event.”
The club is still taking nominations for the tournament so if you feel like breaking out your racket and dusting off your old tennis shoes ring Neale on 0488 792 296 to register.
