ITF Photo Shoot with Belfast Lord Mayor 6th July 2016

Anyone for tennis

7 Jul 2016
As the competition at Wimbledon hots up, Belfast City Council and Ulster Tennis are getting ready to host the Belfast City International Tennis Federation (ITF) Junior Tournament later this month.

Lord Mayor, Alderman Brian Kingston commented: “It’s great to see so many people watching Wimbledon on the Big Screen at City Hall, and hopefully being inspired to play tennis themselves. Tennis is so good for our fitness and wellbeing – as well as being fantastic fun.

“And the tennis fever won’t stop this weekend when Wimbledon draws to a close. We’re proud to be supporting the Belfast City ITF Junior Tournament at Windsor Lawn Tennis Club from Saturday, 23 – Friday, 29 July in partnership with Ulster Tennis. The competition is attracting players and visitors from Europe, USA and further afield and it’s the place to be if you want to spot the stars of the future!”

Lauren Smythe, Ulster Tennis Development Manager said, “Having the prestigious Belfast City ITF Junior Tournament in Belfast gives our junior players an excellent chance to test their performance against the best in the world on their doorstep and showcase tennis to the Northern Ireland public. It will help Ulster Tennis achieve one of its main aims to develop improved performance pathways for Ulster players. Everyone is welcome to come to Windsor and support local players throughout the tournament.”

For those inspired to step onto a court, there are 39 multi-use games areas across Belfast, where tennis and other sports can be played for free. There are also free marked courts at Ormeau Park, as well as ‘pay for play’ indoor courts at the nearby Ozone Complex. Visit for more information.
