Lawn Doubles Classic July2011


JULY 24, 2011

Entries Now Closed

The grass court season looms with intensity as Wimbledon 2011 prepares for a gallant contest between those who have savoured victory on the turf at SW19 and those who challenge at the English lawns.  The smell of success is intense and victory is favoured by those who stay strong and remain focused on the moment.

To support our favourite tennis stars, our community (and for the sheer hell of it) Tennis Sydney is organising the 2011 Lawn Doubles Classic to kick off and bring together the one and only annual grass court event in our 2011 calendar.

To be held at Marrickville Lawn Courts on the 24th July, the one day event  will consist of 32 teams over the six grass courts available. Entries will be “team entry” on a first enter basis. The event held for the first year in December 2010 was a great success and as a result of such tremendous support we are hosting the event post Wimbledon so as to secure the availability of all six grass courts.

The event will be themed ‘strawberries and cream’, so wear your favourite red and white on the day. A licensed bar will be available and we will be hosting a BBQ. Any masterchefs available to prepare food to help raise funds for the auction or available to simply ‘give a free hand’ would be greatly appreciated.

All monies raised from the event will be donated to “Twenty 10”, a non-profit organisation that supports and works with young people, communities and families of diverse genders, sexes and sexualities.

Tennis Sydney looks forward to your support to make the 2011 Lawn Doubles Classic a grand success.

Volunteers available on the day please contact Geoff or Dean at info@tennissydney.org.au
