Day 3 got off to a great start with early round action for the NTRP categories and the ITF qualifying too. The Stanley Park Brewing Beer Garden was abuzz all day and the park was packed.

There was a grand total of 84 matches played in the opening rounds of the NTRP tournament which produced some great competition under a perfect sky. Competitors hit the courts from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. in slightly overcast conditions–meaning it was cool enough for comfortable play and comfortable spectating.

The J4 LW ITF Championship for juniors featured qualifying today, with young competitors showing their metal. Doubles and singles play was on show and these kids delivered! At the end of the day, a spectacular sunset was the perfect finale to another great day of tennis at the LWSPO.

Focus and concentration

Today’s supporting organization: The ITF

Tennis BC is proud to have the opportunity to run a sanctioned ITF J4 competition at the LWSPO. While there have been technical difficulties beyond our control that meant that players could not sign in as usually required, the ITF was quick to respond and adapt to ensure that everything went off without a hitch.
