“The plan is to have ten players for each of the age categories and have them play round robin matches against one another and to ultimately prepare some of them for the forthcoming Dala Hard Court competition.
“The best junior players from across the country will be here, actually, and we want people to come watch top class junior tennis action because that’s what these players we have invited will bring to the courts,” Coach Paul Moses, facilitator of the tournament told Nigeria Tennis Live.
Already, anticipation is high and the tennis section of the National Stadium, Surulere, will play host to these youngsters who will be playing from Tuesday, 31 October to Sunday, 5 November, 2023.
