The brand-new Playford City Tennis Centre will be hosting its first tournament from today.The City of Playford Gold AMT, which concludes on Sunday, features open men’s and women’s singles and doubles competition and is organised by Tennis Gear Management.
A total of 111 entries have been received for the Tennis Australia ranking tournament, with a number of players coming from interstate.
“This presents a great opportunity for tournament players from
across SA and Australia to experience the Playford City Tennis Centre and spread the word on their return home about Australia’s best regional tennis facility,” City of Playford Mayor Glenn Docherty said.
“This is the fourth straight year that the City of Playford
has supported the tournament, which previously had been conducted at the Bicentennial Tennis Centre."
The public is welcome to attend the Playford City Tennis Centre to watch matches, with admission free.
A second Gold AMT tournament will be held at the centre in November.
These two events are test-runs ahead of the pro tour City of Playford Tennis International being hosted from 30 December.
