Junior Tennis festival all set to roll

Stage is set for the CITC Pump Junior Tennis Festival which will be held at the Black Rock Tennis Centre in Nikao tomorrow.


The annual festival, which started four years ago, will be held from 9am to noon.

National tennis head coach Malcolm Kajer said they were anticipating a good turnout for the event.

“There will be fun tennis and co-ordination drills which will give newcomers an opportunity to enjoy tennis and receive tennis coaching,” Kajer said.

“If you don’t have racquets, there are racquets provided. Just make sure the children bring caps and sun block.”

The festival is open to junior tennis players (both boys and girls) aged 5 to 15 years.

Registration will begin at 7.30am and will run for an hour before the festival proper begins at 9am.

Parents and guardians are also encouraged to come along to support their children.

“Sausage sizzles and refreshment would be provided after lessons are completed,” Kajer said.

“This is an introduction to tennis programme and an opportunity for children to take part in free tennis clinic.

“All schools are also welcomed to send their children to the Black Rock Tennis Centre in Nikao for this festival.”
