The Lloydminster Tennis Association is gearing up for their biggest tournament of the year.
This weekend, the association will be hosting the 24th Annual Paul Douglas Classic, named after one of the association’s founding members.
Leonel Aguinaldo, the association’s Director of Communications, says the invitational attracts players from both provinces.
“This is a tournament sanctioned by Saskatchewan Tennis,” Aguinaldo said. “We send invitations to players from affiliate organizations through Saskatchewan Tennis, and yearly we get players all the way from Saskatoon, and North Battleford, and some parts of Alberta.”
Aguinaldo also says the tournament is for two skill levels – 3.5 and 4.5.
The tournament will take place on Bud Miller Park’s outdoor tennis courts. Play starts at 7 p.m Friday, August 14, and lasts all weekend. For more information, go to lloydtennis.ca.
