World Deaf Tennis Championships site inspections scheduled for Thursday and Friday

On Thursday and Friday, World Deaf Tennis is scheduled to travel to Nottingham,  Great Britain to inspect the Nottingham Tennis Centre for the World Deaf Tennis Championships.

The competition is scheduled to take place from July 20 – 27, 2015 and will also be run alongside the World Youth Championships for deaf junior players. The report on the venue is expected to be written on Saturday and then distributed to teams.  The announcement for the host selection was made about a month ago.  The bid to host was put together by the Tennis Foundation and UK Deaf Sport.  The event will be recognized by the International Committee of Sports for the Deaf.

 

The Dresse and Maere Tennis Cups hosted earlier this year was treated by many teams as a warm up event, with players getting a chance to practice and compete against the world’s best. Because that event is a team event, like the World Deaf Tennis Team Championship, many countries were not eligible to send competitors. There were also a number of continental championships for players to take part in.
