KZN Youth Development Tennis team held the South Coast Open Tennis Tournament over the weekend. The tournament started on Saturday and finished on Monday. Over the three days matches were played at the Douglas Mitchell, Uvongo and Umtentweni tennis clubs.

Participants played to get points towards a national ranking. Natalie Granden, tournament organiser, said all things went according to plan and the players did well despite the weather.

“It was a very successful event. A big thank you to the sponsors - South Coast Tourism, Dunlop, Coke, South Coast Tennis Association - for their help. Without them this tournament would never have happened.”

She extended her gratitude to the tennis clubs who gave up their courts in order for the tournament to be played on.

“Umtentweni Tennis Club, Douglas Mitchell Tennis Club and Uvongo Tennis Club, all the hard work and dedication from members was greatly appreciated,” she said.
