Our Rotary Tennis tournament established itself as Bali's biggest and most popular Amateur tennis tournament and confirmed this position with another record year. 235 entries were registered for the 2010 tournament. Since 1992 the Rotary Club Bali Nusa Dua Charity Tennis Tournament has raised over Rp. 500.000.000,- for handicapped children throughout Bali to help them lead more productive lives. As every year we welcomed players from various countries who enjoy fantastic accommodation from particiapting hotels like the Westin Bali, the Nikko Bali and the Laguna Bali, who supporting this event with amazing deals on room rates. In the name of the tournament committee, I would like to thank all players and sponsors for their continuous and generous support, especially DUNL OP TEN NIS who provided tennis balls and some extra prizes for this years event. The tradition of Bali's most popular tennis tournament continues and we look
