The Guyana Lawn Tennis Association (GLTA) Doubles Tournament will discover the last of its winners when the match-up unfolds on the lawns of the Pegasus Hotel to conclude the final three matches today.
Sponsored by Trophy Stall of Bourda Market, the tournament was originally expected to end last weekend but inclement weather caused the completion to be rescheduled for today. As a result of this, the GBTI Open which should have started this weekend has been put back by one week.
