ABOUT 100 players will participate in the annual Easter Tennis Open Championship which starts in Lautoka tomorrow morning.

The four-day tournament has attracted 15 junior players from the Norfolk Islands.

Matches will be played in the open singles, doubles, mixed doubles and four junior categories with the under-10, U12, U14 and U16.

Fiji Tennis Association vice-president Naga Reddy said they have received overwhelming response for the tournament.

Reddy said many junior players would be participating.

"The Easter open will serve as a build up to the West Pacific qualifying tournament in three weeks," he said.

"Because of the big entry, the Regional Tennis Centre courts and the Northern Club courts will be utilised. The contingent from the Norfolk Islands will spice up the tournament."

Tito Bira from Kiribati is the favourite for the men's singles title while Fiji's number one Annie Shannon is the top seed in the ladies open singles category.
