Liverpool International Tennis Tournament visits Southport's Kings Gardens

THE Liverpool International Tennis Tournament has grown, since 2002, to become the longest running and largest tennis exhibition in Europe. This amazing event is due to be held over 15 June to 18 June 2017, within the wonderful surroundings of the Liverpool Cricket Club. The 16th Edition of the now titled Liverpool Hope University International Tennis Tournament is set to be one of the best yet, catering for 10,000 spectators per tournament! With some of the biggest names in Tennis ready to play in front of you, at a fraction of the cost of Wimbledon Tickets!

Here at Southport Reporter, as 1 of the media partners, we looked at how Southport can benefit from this excellent sporting event. Interestingly, we have a few of the UK's top players in and around Southport, plus Hope University is actively involved within the local tennis community, so to us, it makes even more sense to push it... Therefore as part of the build up to the 2017 event, the Tournament hosted a free Tennis session on King's Gardens, on Southport's historic Promenade, on Sunday, 4 June 2017. So with the thanks of the Friend's of Kings Gardens and Sefton Parks and Gardens, we decided to ask that the outreach part of the Tournament visit Southport. This outreach side of the Tournament is aimed at promoting not only the event, but also the benefits of Tennis in keeping people healthy and active, as well as giving information on how to join tennis clubs locally. Due to the London attacks, we decided to keep the event low key, but it was extremely well received and the miniature tennis court looked fantastic, within the 17 acre garden, overlooking Southport's Marine Lake.
