A Local Perspective on Life in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

Tennis Tournament for Beginners

There will be a tennis tournament for beginners on March 11. (If the event has to be postponed for some reason, it will be held on the 18th.) It will be at Ninomiya Park and Expo Memorial Park (Banpaku Kinen Koen) and will involve men’s and women’s doubles. People who live or work in Tsukuba, or who belong to a club in Tsukuba are eligible to join. Both members of the doubles team should not have ever participated in a formal tournament, and they should not have gone past a third game in a beginners’ tournament like this in the past five years. Thirty teams can sign up on a first come, first served basis. The fee is 600 yen per pair. Sign up by February 16 at the G&T Pro Shop (south of Jusco and Seibu). See the Tsukuba Gym Association website for more information (in Japanese).
