The prestigious Queen’s Club of Colombo, a 150 years old hallmark of Colonial Ceylon has undertaken the privilege of organizing this momentous event to showcase the iconic past tennis greats and the illustrious present stars together in conjunction with JAT Holdings (Pvt.) Ltd in what guarantees to be a thrilling encounter of wits and skills.
JAT Holdings, one of the top conglomerate brands in Sri Lanka has undertaken the mantel   of title sponsor for the event while Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT), Cargills, National Savings Bank (NSB) and Crown Paints will sponsor the teams competing at the inaugural SLPTL tournament by JAT. The teams will be SLT Tuskers, Cargills Eagles, NSB Jaguars, and Crown Sharks.
JAT and Queen’s Club have collaborated to create an event, which will greatly facilitate the sport of tennis to develop to International levels, offer present players a platform to enhance their skills, encourage more youth to take up the sport and grant their growing fan base an opportunity to witness a tournament of international standards.  It has always given JAT great pleasure in nurturing and supporting the development of sportsmen and women who can successfully appear in world sporting arenas. A great sportsman himself who has represented his Alma Mater in many sports, Mr. Aelian Gunawardene, Managing Director JAT Holdings said he’s both proud and privileged to extend his sponsorship to Tennis as much as he has done with cricket, basketball and hockey.
Among the luminaries participating in the tournament will be leading Sri Lankan men’s players such as the reigning national champion, Dineshkanthan Thangarajah, the leading women’s player, the six-time national champion, Amritha Muttiah and the current women’s top seed, Nethmi Waduge. The competition will also be graced by other stalwarts of Sri Lanka’s tennis scene such Yasitha De Silva, Nishangan Nadaraja, Sankha Athukorala Anika Seneviratne, Hasindhi Lokuge to name just a few.

This clash of stamina Vs proficiency is certain to produce a contest of keen tension and spectacle.
The games will be played in a round robin format in which the top two teams will face off in the final on July 3rd Sunday. Each team will consist of a manager, a captain, a men’s player, 2 women’s players, 2 veteran players, a corporate player and a tie will consist of five (5) sets; a men’s singles set, a women’s singles set, an open doubles set, a junior boy’s singles set and a veteran doubles set.

Upon winning the point, the receiving team would get two points while losing the point the serving team will get only one point, for an example if the receiving team is trailing 15-0, it will directly get to 15-30 by winning the JAT Power Point and lose a point upon losing the Power Point.
Sri Lanka Telecoms’ exclusive TV platform PEO TV has undertaken the task of broadcasting the event live for the fans who will be watching with interest from the comfort of their own homes, while ThePapare.com will be the online sporting partner for the event.
