RCBND’s 20th Annual Rotary Bali Charity Tennis Tournament: May 8-15, 2011

Tempus fugit… (time flies). To think that in just a few short months 20 years will have passed since Rtns. Jo Rosarius and Wes Nieman joined together with then local tennis pro Craig Marshall to raise money to help needy children on Bali. That first tournament was held in 1991 when Rotary Club Bali Nusa Dua was still a provisional club.

Now the longest running, most popular and largest charity tennis event on Bali, Rotary Club Bali Nusa Dua will hold its 20th Annual Rotary Bali Charity Tennis Tournament May 8 – 15, 2011.

Since its inception the Rotary Bali Charity Tennis Tournament has generated some Rp. 790,000,000 to provide health and human services to the poor and disadvantaged children on Bali and nearby islands.

Over the years this care has been mainly in the form of craniofacial surgery i.e. hare-lip and cleft palate operations together with burn treatment and surgery to correct other deformities. And so it will be again with the 20th annual tournament; all proceeds from tournament will be earmarked to fund special projects assisting children on Bali.

You can be sure that the 20th annual edition of this tournament will be bigger and better than ever so…. head over to http://rotarybalitennis.org/ for more information and tournament announcements.

And of course there’s a facebook page to follow announcements and developments and share info.
