County Antrim Tennis Championships success

County Antrim Tennis Championships event organised by Council’s Recreation Department and refereed by Ulster Branch Tennis Ireland took place Monday 11th – Saturday 16th July 2011.

The event facilitates a Junior and Senior Competition which run simultaneously during the week was once again very well supported.

In total there were 112 participants in the Junior event and 122 participants in the Senior competition which are similar to previous years. As reported previously securing sponsorship for our Annual Tennis Tournaments has become increasingly difficult in the current financial climate.

Durign a recent Moyle District Council meeting, members heard: ‘Council has been very fortunate to have had the support from our numerous local sponsors over the past three seasons that have assisted Council in delivering the events.

‘We are very fortunate to have secured the support of Playrite Specialist Sports Surfaces in association with J Campbell & Sons Ltd as Sponsor for the 2011 season and we hope build a successful partnership for future years.’
