    Five outstation tennis tournaments fixed for 2016

    January 02, 2016

    The year 2016 will witness five outstation tennis tournaments, the Sri Lanka Tennis Association (SLTA) announced last week.

    The said tournaments will be held in Bandarawela, Kandy, Kurunegala, Negombo and Nuwara Eliya.


    Out of these six tourneys, three, to be held in Negombo, Nuwara Eliya and Bandarawela, will be open ranking events. Other than the one scheduled for Nuwara Eliya, the rest will include events for Tennis 10s participants (for Under-10 age group).


    It is also notable that all these tournaments are traditionally fixed events in the usual SLTA yearly programme calendar for the last ten years or so. There will be around 14 tennis tournaments, both junior and open, scheduled to be held in Colombo alone this year.


    The following will be the schedule of the outstation tennis tournaments slated for the year 2016, as stipulated in the SLTA annual tournament calendar:
