Organisers urge states, clubs to conduct trials for SNEPCo junior tennis tourney
Organisers of the SNEPCo Junior Tennis Championship, the International Tennis Academy (ITA), yesterday advised clubs, academies and states outside Lagos to conduct pre-tournament trials and bring the best in the different age categories to the junior championship.
SNEPCo Junior Tennis Championship will hold in Lagos in the last quarter of this year.
A statement by the organisers said that after 10 years of running the ITA Junior Circuit and the very encouraging results achieved, none of the cells that send players to the championships have been inspired to start similar junior events in their various states, except the Kodian Tennis Foundation in Port Harcourt.
“We would encourage and support the various resource persons in various states to establish pretournament trials before a major event like the SNEPCo Junior Tennis Championships,” said director of the ITA, Godwin Kienka.
