An tennis tournament open to both men and women players Ė including a juniors' division, will be held at The Westin Resort, Nusa Dua, Bali June 6-12, 2005.
Organized by the Resort in collaboration with Joe Russell Tennis International, the event is intended to raise funds for the Gelombang Udara Segar (GUS) Foundation - an organization dedicated to improving the quality of Bali's air and water.
Open to single and double players, for both men and women,, the format of the tournament is best two out of three sets. Two separate juniors' divisions, divided between 7-12 year-olds and 13-18 year-olds, will be operated on a proset tournament basis.
"The aim is to entice the tennis lover to have fun, meet fellow tennis players, and get competition experience while helping Bali's environment through the GUS Foundation," commented Scott Jeffreys, The Westin Resort's Tennis Director.
By contributing Rp. 50,000 for the entry fee per person, participants will be competing for prizes in the junior and amateur events and US$600.00 in total prize money for the open events. A portion of the revenues from sponsors and entry fees will be donated to the GUS Foundation, a fully registered, non-profit foundation, located in Bali, Indonesia.
The GUS Foundation
Gelombang Udara Segar or GUS translates literally into a "wave of fresh air." GUS is dedicated to improving air and water quality in Bali. GUS has developed a range of cost-effective, easily installed, low-maintenance natural systems to improve the quality of water. These systems are suitable for domestic and commercial applications. GUS projects improve air and water quality by improved treatment of liquid and solid wastes. The system has already been installed on public lavatories in selected locations around the island.
