Jos Tournament

One of the organizers who spoke with Nigeria Tennis Live, noted that the RTC is working really hard to promote tennis in Jos, Plateau, as there are not many activities from that region.

She noted that the competition, which was open only to players from Plateau State, will soon help local players gain prominence on the national stage.

“In our club we have other tournaments and activities yearly. This year we had our annual kids clinic Because of financial constraints we could not have the others,” Mandy said.
