The outgoing tennis pro of the Canggu Club, Robbert Wille, will oversee the tournament. He explained: “Each year I’ve seen this tournament grow from strength to strength and the tennis community in Bali is becoming stronger. Great athletes from abroad and locally get to compete together in a fun and relaxed environment on Bali’s best courts. “
Meanwhile Incoming pro for the Club, Paul McCabe, will be on hand. McCabe has worked with some of the top players in Europe and Asia. Coming to Bali fresh from Shanghai, Paul is excited being in Bali in his capacity as director of tennis at the Canggu Club.
Longtime participant in the Canggu Tournament, Jenny de Blecourt, says, “It’s fun to come even if you’re not playing. My goal every year is to win in the open division and despite the results I have a fabulous time with an awesome crowd of people who like to play as well as party.”
