LTA Tournaments at EVTC

Over the last 3 weeks, Elstead Tennis Club have run official LTA tournaments for 12 and under, 9 and under and 8 and under players.  The competitions have been aimed at children who have not played in tournaments before, and a number of Elstead Tennis Club members have competed in all the age groups.
The tournaments have been run by Douglas Barker, one of the coaches at the club, who is also a qualified referee.  The tournaments have been great fun for all the children who have been involved.  The club will be running more starter tournaments throughout the winter as well as looking forward to the Regional Grade 3 Dan Burden Trophy from the 13th to the 20th July.

The Dan Burden Trophy 2019

The sixth Dan Burden Trophy will be taking place from 13th to 20th July at Elstead Tennis Club. The tournament is run to remember Dan, a young coach at Elstead Village Tennis Club who died in a car crash on 11th October 2013 aged 21. He was a fun loving, mischievous young man with a great sense of humour. We hope that the tournament will be played with his spirit for his memory.

The Dan Burden Trophy is a LTA grade 3 tournament, which is regional level. Elstead is probably one of the smallest clubs in the country to run a grade 3 event. Players from all over the country have taken part over the past 5 years, and the tournament has expanded year on year. Some of the events are now played at Byfleet but there is still a large number of events at Elstead to enjoy.

From Saturday 13th to Monday 15th, the 14U and 18U boys and girls will be battling it out, with the mini tennis at the end of the week – 9U on Thursday 18th, 10U on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th, and 8U on Saturday 20th.

We are hoping that this year’s tournament will be another success and would love to see you there. Why not pop in for a coffee and watch some amazing tennis on your doorstep.
