PBI May-June Tennis Update

Dear Tennis Enthusiasts,

What a month we had in May, and a slightly hot yet exciting one coming up in June! May serves as our last official full month of the Tennis season here in Dubai and as such was the last full month of our Junior Tennis programs. This season, May also played host to our Peter Burwash International (PBI) Jumeirah club championships for which we had over 50 Male and Female competitors from both Talise Madinat Jumeirah and the Jumeirah Beach Hotel. A huge congratulation to Hedi Mlouka for taking out the men’s singles title, Oleg Geraskin and Darious Nouri for winning the Men’s doubles and Marion Soundardjee for successfully defending the women’s singles title. In the Women’s Doubles Annie Silver defended her title, this year with partner and new member Annelie Roux. Please see the below highlights from the month of May as well as the upcoming events in June.
