Ulladulla’s 20th Bungalow Park Seniors Tennis Tournament Attracts World’s Top Male Player
On the weekend of Friday the 16th to Sunday the 18th of February the Ulladulla Tennis Centre in Warden Street will be a hive of activity with over 200 players plus their entourages aged from 35 to 85 from all around NSW, ACT, Victoria and further afield converging on the Ulladulla district for the annual BIG4 Bungalow Park Burrill Lake Ulladulla Seniors Tennis Tournament.
MUDTA is especially excited to welcome the world champion male singles and doubles player in the 65-70 years category, Andrew Rae of Mount Eliza, Victoria, who has been named the Seniors Australia player of the year on many occasions. Several other players in attendance have also played at an international level where they have been successful in becoming world champions, including ex-local Helen Worland and Adrienne Avis. While the competition is targeted at visitors, a small number of Ulladulla Tennis Club players will also try their luck against these world-class players.
Beginning in 1999 as part of the Ulladulla Summer Games initiative, the 2018 tournament will mark the 20th time the event has been held and we will be acknowledging this special milestone with some presentations, special guests and memorabilia displays.
This popular tournament appeals to many due to the friendships, camaraderie and good times that the competition will bring and many players stay in the area for a holiday afterwards. On Saturday night the Club will host a barbecue for competitors and volunteers for everyone to get together and socialise off the courts.
Residents and visitors are invited to witness some exceptional 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 and a new innovation this year – market stalls.
