It is intended to hold a lawn tennis tournament on an extensive scale during Exhibition season. At a meeting of the New Zealand Lawn Tennis Championship Committee, held the other day, it was resolved that the tournament be held on the 26th, 27th, 28th, and 30th December next on the Carisbrook Ground. The Committee decided to use Slazenger'a covered tennis balls, and ordered a supply of L4l worth of material from England. A draft programme, comprising nine events, was submitted to the meeting, and referred to a sub-committee for consideration. Players are expected from all parts of New Zealand, while Australian and even English players are also likely to be represented. The guarantee fund up to date amounts to about L9O, and over LIOO is expected. It appears to be certain that a strong combined team of Australian bowlers will visit Dunedin while the Exhibition is open, to take part in the intercolonial bowling tournament. Mr Montgomery, a gentleman who has been entrusted with the task of making arrangements, is at present in Christchurch, and may be expected in Dunedin shortly. The team will arrive in December, and also probably visit Christchurch, Wellington, and Auckland.
