Game, set and… hack – Bulgaria prepares for journalists’ tennis championships

(Thanks to @hayjane for the headline)

Good luck to all those participating in the World Tennis Championships for Journalists taking place in Varna, Bulgaria next week – in particular UK representatives Daniel Magill and Tony Doran.

Team captain Doran, who runs Doran Press Agency, and Magill, who is mobile portal content editor for Three Mobile, will play in the six-day tournament, which starts on Sunday with the finals taking place on Friday September 4.

The next major competition will be in May 2010, the European Championships in Austria.

So for anyone who’s never dropped a ball on a story (thanks to @plc for that one) can find out more on the Tennis4Media website or contact anthony [at] doranpressagency.co.uk or magilldaniel [at] aol.com.

There’s a mixture of singles tournaments for different age groups, male and female – as such Magill assures me all standards of players are very welcome.

Best of luck to all.
