LateRooms.com - Milan to host Italian Gay Open Tennis

July 29, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
LateRooms.com divulges anyone looking to attend a sporting event with a difference may wish to get tickets to the Italian Gay Open Tennis, which is taking place in Milan this summer.

The occasion, which runs from September 2nd to 5th 2010, is described by What's on When as the "grand slam for gay and lesbian tennis enthusiasts".

There are a variety of levels which players can compete in, from beginner through to advanced tournament competitors.

All the action takes place at the Tennis Corvetto on Via Fabio Massimo, which can be easily reached from most luxury hotels Milan has to offer.

Budding tennis stars will be interested to hear that matches will be played on indoor clay courts.

According to What's on When, the contest tends to attract about 150 players, although there are often plenty of spectators as well.

Eager sportsmen and women can register online and must pay 75 (£63) to participate in one event or 85 for two.

For those who feel less active, there is also the Friday dinner and Saturday IGO party, which cost 25 and 15 respectively and are taking place at the Ristorante Sant'Eustorgio and Discoteca Borgo.

The occasion is organised by the Associazione Tennisti Omosessuali (Atomo), which also puts on a similar contest in the springtime.

For more information on this event visit the Atomo website or contact the venue on +39 0253 1436.
