Plea for veterans
DUE RESPECT SHOULD be given to the veterans of the sport.
This is the word from Juliet Worrell, organiser of the inaugural Lance Bynoe Veterans Road Tennis Tournament, which serves off today and runs until January 22 at the Rubis Sports Club in Brighton.
Her comments come in the wake of the realisation that there will be a clash with the Vincent Sno Cone Amateur Road Tennis Championships, hosted by Philip “Foff” Garner.
That competition began yesterday at the Deighton “Pa” Roach Facility in Bush Hall and ends on Errol Barrow Day.
“The veterans had been asking for a tournament for a while, and I think we should give them their due respect, and the tournament that is scheduled for this weekend can take a back seat and can go the week after,” she told the SATURDAY SUN.
