Town Planning red flag for road tennis

THE TOWN AND COUNTRY Planning Department has made an unplayable first serve in this year’s Monarchs Of The Court tournament, leaving road tennis players on the sidelines for the time being.

It means the island’s most lucrative road tennis tournament, which has a car worth
$60 000 as the men’s first prize, won’t start as scheduled tonight at a spanking new venue in Dash Valley, St George, that is adorned with bleachers surrounding the court.

Dale Clarke, president of the Professional Road Tennis Association (PRTA), made the announcement during Friday night’s launch of the tournament and players’ draw at the picturesque venue.

“I have a little bit of bad news. Unfortunately, the Town and Country Planning called this morning [Friday] and said they had an issue with the venue so there is a meeting on Monday where we will go and try to sort out all the issues so we could proceed with having the tournament here,” Clarke said.
