Open, junior tennis tournaments in Kep

The coastal town of Kep will host two tennis tournaments beginning on April 10, marking the onset of the Cambodian New Year.

Association Sportive de Kep, in partnership with Tennis Cambodia, will organise a men’s open tournament involving singles and doubles from April 10 to 13. Entry is $7 per person, while a BBQ party at $8 a head will cap off the event.

A total prize fund of $500 has been set apart for the Open, which is likely to see two national players, Mam Phalkun and Long Samneang, in action.

The two-day junior event, which starts on April 12, will run in three categories – U18, U14 and U12 – with no entrance fee.

All the matches will be played at Villa Romonea and Tennis Academy of Kep courts.

Until the semi-final stages, the NOAD system of two sets of four games with no advantage will be in force with a 10-point super tie break deciding the third set. The last four and finals will be contested over conventional advantage sets.
