International tennis came to the Cardiff suburbs when Rhiwbina Tennis Club hosted an ITF (International Tennis Federation) world seniors tour event, supported by our client Tennis Wales.
The Yonex YCsports Welsh Seniors Open involved more than 60 players from Wales, England, Scotland, Hong Kong and New Zealand, in age groups 35, 45, 55, and 65, singles, doubles and mixed.
Peter Drew, chief executive of Tennis Wales, said: “The ITF seniors tour provides a high level of competition which enables players to enjoy tennis for life.
“Rhiwbina Tennis Club did an excellent job in hosting the tournament, and we were pleased to give our support. It’s great news that it will be back next year.
“I hope it will inspire people of all ages to try tennis, whether for fun or competition – it really is a sport that can be played by everyone, especially with our new formats and venues.”
The tournament will be held again at the same time in 2017.
