Aiming to raise as much money as possible for the LGBTI organisation Triangle Project, the 6th annual Cape Town LGBTI Tennis Open will once again take place in September 2018.

With the hopes of becoming part of the global LGBTI tennis circuit, the event, which will be held from the 22-24 of September 2018 at the Pinelands Tennis Club, is looking for both participants and sponsors.

Since the tournament’s creation in 2012, the LGBTI Tennis Open has donated over R50,000 ($5,600 NZD) to a range of local LGBTI charities, with this years charity being named as the Triangle Project.

Offering LGBTI people services in the areas of health and support including, counselling, health clinics, and supporting survivors of violence, the Triangle Project is a non-profit that also focuses on community engagement, empowerment, research, advocacy, and policy.

Running alongside the Tennis Open, the event will also include a charity auction, where donated items will be sold to the highest bidders.

The organisers are calling for sponsors to come forward, to not only secure the tournament’s prize money but to also donate items for prizes and the auction.

“It’s our sincere hope that you’ll consider joining our cause in elevating the tournament to the biggest, most inclusive iteration of the LGBTI Tennis Open Cape Town to date,” Co-Chair Brynmore Roberts, explained.

“In the year to come it’s our goal to be endorsed by the GLTA (Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance) and have one more leg of the worldwide LGBTI Tennis Tour take part in the Mother City. With your help, we can achieve that goal.”
