Local lawn tennis doubles pairs will look for improved weather this month-end when they compete in the Trophy Stall Doubles lawn tennis tournament.
Managing Director of Trophy Stall, Ramesh Sunich, yesterday said that he was excited to fully sponsor the tournament for the third time.
Sunich said that he has enjoyed supporting the association as a vendor for several years but now wants to give back to the sport to stimulate more interest and help it to grow.
An estimated 30 pairs will display their tactics for what is expected to be a keenly contested tournament especially for the top-seeded pairs Sandeep Chand/Andre Lopes and Jeremy Miller/Jason Andrews in the men’s Open and the mother/daughter pair Shelly and Nicola Ramdyhan in the Ladies Open.
President of the GLTA, Ramesh Seebarran has expressed gratitude to Sunich for his venture into the sponsorship of lawn tennis having been the primary trophy vendor supporting the sport for over 10 years. There will be trophies for the men’s Open doubles, ladies Open doubles, men’s over 35 doubles and mixed doubles events.
Additionally Trophy Stall T-shirts will be presented to all the finalists.
