The Windsor Classic International Wheelchair Tennis Tournament kicks off tomorrow, and will feature athletes from Canada, U.S.A., Japan and Great Britian all of whom will be vying for this championship win.
Held at Parkside Tennis Club at Jackson Park, the tournament features full rounds of tournament play in singles and doubles will play off in the men’s open division.
Seven of this years athletes hold a World Ranking position in the top 50. Tournament Organizer Jennifer Bellaire says this is the highest level of Wheelchair tennis yet in Windsor. Top Canadian Joel Dembe is looking to put in a good showing, but knows he has his work cut out for him. With returning champion from 2011, Jon Rydberg of the U.S.A., only attaining the 4th seed position in the tournament, the field is extremely strong.
Windsors are welcome to watch the action at no cost on Thursday from 9am to 4pm, Friday from 9am to 2pm. Finals kick off Saturday at 9am.
