Our regional tennis organisation has expressed considerable interest (they oversee 47 clubs in my area), but we haven't finalised the details yet.
Great idea on the woody tournament to celebrate the Wilding Centenary. I played a woody tourney this year that was a tribute to Jack Kramer which really made it special to me.
