Seniors NSW Tournament
The Ulladulla Tennis Centre in Warden Street hosts a seniors tournament every February when players aged from 35 to 85 from all around NSW, ACT, Victoria and further afield converge on the Ulladulla district for the annual BIG4 Bungalow Park Burrill Lake Seniors Tennis Tournament.
In 2018 the tournament will be held for the 20th time from Friday the 16th to Sunday the 18th of February. We will be acknowledging this special milestone with some presentations and memorabilia displays.
Players are encouraged to bring any photos, news items or other reminders of past involvement to share and add to the display.
The applications for entries for this tournament have been many and early and there may still be places available in the singles and mixed doubles events due to late withdrawals only. Players who have missed out can contact Mary Lou on the email address below to be put on a reserve list in case of withdrawals. All of the ladies and men’s doubles events are already full and the waiting list is closed for those events.
More than 200 players plus their entourages will be drawn to the area with many staying on for a holiday after the competition. In the past some have represented Australia at an international level where they have been successful in becoming world champions.
Beginning in 1999 this popular tournament, appeals to many due to the friendships, camaraderie and good times that the competition will bring.
On Saturday night the Club will host a barbecue for competitors and volunteers for everyone to get together and socialise off the courts.
While the competition is targeted at visitors, a number of Ulladulla Tennis Club players will also participate in the competition.
Residents and visitors are invited to witness some great tennis being played and to see the outstanding facility we have in Ulladulla. Entry to the complex is free and there are many viewing areas throughout with first class catering services.
Mary Lou Barclay is the tournament director and will begin taking entries in October each year for Singles events on Friday, Men’s and Ladies Doubles on Saturday morning with Mixed Doubles in the afternoon. These events will be held again on Sunday in varying age groups.
