Bahrain to host international junior tennis championships

Bahrain will host an international junior tennis championships in Juffair next week.

The Bahrain ITF Juniors Tennis Championship, hosted by the Bahrain Tennis Club, will be held at the BTC hard courts between Monday October 21 and Sunday October 26.

It is the 11th edition of the annual championship the Bahrain Tennis Club has hosted. There will be 32 boys and 32 girls competing in the singles, and 16 for the doubles.

Young tennis stars from the UK, India, the Czech Republic, Germany and France will all be competing in the event which is part of the junior tennis championships held across the globe.

The Bahrain Tennis Club was set up in 1973 and hosts a number of championships for all age groups throughout the year.

The news comes after it was announced that Bahrain would host the West Asia Paralympic Games in 2021.

It is hoped the games will “make Asia one of the leading regions of the Paralympic movement”.
