Liverpool International Tennis Tournament

More people should know about this tournament! It's a rare chance to see a lot of tennis without travelling out of the City - and some of the stars of the future were on show.

I went on two days - last Thursday and yesterday. It all took part in Calderstones Park. The women's singles finals yesterday was particularly good with the runner up last year winning this year after a pretty closely matched contest.

What I liked best about the tournament though was the very organised way in which groups of school children are involved. They get to see chunks of the matches, but also to take part in some tennis and games themselves. Liverpool has a massive tennis training programme and already has some home grown potential stars.
