The Bulawayo Open is set to be part of the NEC wheel chair tennis tour and will follow the successful hosting of the Harare Open held at Harare Sports Club early this month.

Wheel chair tennis Association of Zimbabwe President Lewis Garaba says the International Tennis Federation’s approval to give Zimbabwe the right to stage the inaugural edition of the Bulawayo Open is an indication of the faith the world tennis governing body has in the administration of wheelchair tennis in Zimbabwe.

The Bulawayo Open wheel chair tennis tournament will be held in Bulawayo from the 15th to the 19th of August and will be preceded by a national training camp for senior men, women and junior players.
