National tennis tourney put back due to weather

Treacherous weather conditions forced the indefinite postponement of the national junior tennis event scheduled to be played last weekend for the first time on a clay surface in Siem Reap’s ICF Sports Complex.

“After three days of rain and in consideration of further storms approaching the region we had no option but to put off the event for a later date,” said tournament director Scott Windus, who also heads Tennis Cambodia’s northwestern operations.

After receiving almost three days of much higher than average rainfall in the Siem Reap area last week, the court surface had been rendered unfit for play. It would take more than two days of sunshine for the clay courts to dry out to allow regular play.

With the weather predictions for the ensuing days and weeks in mind, the organisers decided to hold the event sometime in the final week of October or early November.
