Mercantile tennis from Oct. 6

The second Mercantile Tennis tournament, conducted by the Sri Lanka Tennis Association will start on October 6 and continue till October 14, said Irshad Othman, tournament co-ordinator. Entries close on October 3.

Last year’s Mercantile tournament was a success with 18 firms participating. "This year we expect many more participants as we have included an event for novices", said Othman. The points system to select the overall winner will be similar to last year. First round winners will receive five points and subsequent wins thereafter will also earn five points each. Participants in the novices event will earn one point for each win, he said.

Last year, National Development Bank won the team event with 105 points, while Hong Kong Bank came in second with 75 points.
