Tennis SA has today announced the Limestone Coast region will host the Tennis SA State League All Stars, as part of the 2023-24 State League season.

Tennis SA, in conjunction with the Naracoorte Lucindale Council and Lucindale Country Club, will host the event at the Lucindale Country Club on Saturday 25 November 2023.

The state’s highest level competition will visit regional South Australia for the third time, following the highly successful events held in Port Lincoln and the Riverland in previous years.

Eight Tennis SA State League players will join six local tennis players to make two teams for the head-to-head which will feature singles, doubles and mixed doubles.

Players will also take part in a variety of community engagement and tourism activities while they are in the region.

In an exciting new addition to the All Stars competition, local children are being encouraged to sign up as Ballkids. Come and try sessions will be held in September with a squad of 18 to be selected. One girl and one boy will then be chosen to be a part of the Adelaide International Ballkid Squad in 2024.

“We are thrilled to be announced as the host venue for the Tennis SA State League All Stars in 2023,” Lucindale Tennis Junior Representative Eliza Handbury said.

“The development of our junior players is an area of focus for our tennis club. There are some really exciting plans coming together for the All Stars weekend and having the players in town will be a great experience for our up-and-coming local junior players.”

“The Naracoorte Lucindale Council is so pleased to be named as the host region for the Tennis SA State League All Stars,” Naracoorte Lucindale Council CEO Trevor Smart said.

“We can’t wait to welcome the players to town later this year and introduce them to all our region has to offer. This will be a great spectacle and we hope to see the local community come along in full force.”

“We are thrilled to be taking the Tennis SA State League All Stars to the Limestone Coast later this year,” Tennis SA CEO Debbie Sterrey said.

“The team in Lucindale have already welcomed us with open arms and we look forward to our players experiencing the same in November.”

The schedule of events and players will be announced in the coming months.
