The NNPC Junior Tennis Masters has been scheduled to hold in Lagos from Monday December 14 to Saturday December 19.The tournament will round off a busy ITA Junior Tennis Circuit calendar for the year 2015 and, according to the organisers, has been deliberately scheduled to coincide with the second week of the Lagos Governor’s Cup.
The tournament will feature three categories – boys and girls 12s, 14s and 16s.
Director of the International Tennis Academy, Godwin Kienka said, “The idea is to have our best juniors come together, play their matches early and then move over to watch the professionals play at the satellite event.
“We hope that watching foreign players compete will help to inspire and motivate our juniors to redouble their effort to becoming good players.”
The first leg of the NNPC Junior Championships took place in Kaduna Tuesday November 3 to Sunday 8.
