The first weekend at the Leith Wheeler Stanley Park Open was a wet one! Thank you to all the players for their patience, and to our tournament referees and volunteers for their hard work. Yesterday, the Davis Trading U18 ITF Qualifying event completed the final round of Qualifying indoors at the UBC Tennis Centre. The U10 Invitational was also played indoors. Once the courts were dry at the Park, NTRP Group 1 play continued. Despite the delay in matches getting started, there was no shortage of great tennis. There were many three-set thrillers! View Day 3 NTRP results here.
