Kyabram Lawn Tennis Club Easter Tournament director Jodie Schumann and club treasurer Kerrie Campbell are looking forward to a weekend of tennis action and nostalgia as the club hosts the last Easter tournament in the current clubhouse.
Easter this year will see the end of an era as Kyabram Lawn Tennis Club hosts its last Easter Tournament in its old clubhouse.
Club treasurer Kerrie Campbell said the weekend would provide an opportunity for a bit of club nostalgia.
‘‘The clubhouse is due to be demolished a couple of weeks after Easter, so we’re keen to get former club members and players along to have a look around it for the last time,’’ she said.
‘‘Anyone is welcome to come along and take part in the tournament or just watch and soak up the atmosphere.’’
Players from as far as Canberra and Melbourne come to Kyabram for the Easter tennis tournament and there is always plenty of support from local players from other club’s around the district.
Last year, the tournament attracted about 170 players with more than 370 competition entries made overall.
Easter Tournament director Jodie Schumann said Kyabram Lawn Tennis Club’s annual Easter Tournament started in the 1920s and was restored to the club’s event calendar in 1986 after a 14-year break.
‘‘We’d love to see some past players here this weekend to share their memories and talk about plans for the future,’’ she said.
The three-day tournament is played as a round-robin event to ensure all players get to play several sets.
It starts on Saturday with men’s and ladies doubles in A, B and C senior grades, plus 14-and-under, 12-and-under and 10-and-under junior events.
Singles competitions will take place on Sunday, with players divided into the same grades, and on Monday it’s mixed doubles.
Most players enter the doubles events as a pair, but tournament organisers will aim to find partners for any players needing one.
