We play the ALTV Tournament with each player entered in 2 singles and 1 doubles category, so plenty of matches to get used to red clay. The Dutch system is arranged by ability levels. We will also practice mornings at the tournament site.

We will also spend part of a day in Amsterdam, seeing the Anne Frank House, Riksmuseum or Van Gogh Museum, as time permits.
