As a tradition, tennis season in Latvia is concluding with tournament in Liepaja – “Olympic Stars”. This tournament took place already 8th time.

Tournament organizers were satisfied, because at the last tournament of the season participated 39 new tennis players not only from Liepaja, but as well from other cities, like Ventspils, Rīgas, Ādažiem, Mārupes and more.piparkukasEven though the tournament had a lot of participants, great games and big competition, our new tennis players knew how to use home field advantages.
