Tournament to return to Hillsborough tennis club
and live on Freeview channel 276
Ireland’s Davis and Federation Cup stars arrive to compete for a lucrative prize fund whilst many of Ireland’s top US college players’ also fly in for what is widely described as a festival of tennis for everyone at the Downshire Club.
The current gentlemen’s singles champion is the club’s very own coach and former Davis Cup player Peter Bothwell.
Indeed, with brother and fellow Davis Cup player Sam, they also hold the doubles title.
While the tournament attracts Ireland’s best talent it also is superbly supported by local players who participate in graded tournament play – so there really is competitive tennis for all standards.
Downshire Tennis Club have been very privileged to have had Johnston Campbell Financial Advisers as their sponsor for the past few years, a mantle that Kirk’s Bakery has taken over for the future.
Without their support, the club would find it very difficult to host such a prestigious tournament and very much appreciate their commitment and enthusiasm. For more information please contact Patrick Beattie on 07887 735407 or [email protected].
