Naija Tennis Special can authoritatively report that a new tennis clinic, where youngsters are being tutored, is currently running at the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.
According to respected tennis coach, Kayode Savage, who is the coordinator of the training sessions for the kids, the tennis clinic had been in the offing for sometime, but he had to start when everything was set.
In a chat with Naija Tennis Special, Kay-K, as he is fondly called, explained that, “the summer clinic is just a sample of what we are trying to do.
|The summer clinic which started last weekend, will end on 27 August|
“We are looking at a situation where we can discover youngsters at a really tender age.
“We started on July 27 and it will run for a month. The trainings hold from 9am-12pm daily and we shall enjoin parents who are interested in building future stars to enrol their children,” he said.
On how the parents can enrol their wards/children, Savage, who coaches Mary-Love Edwards- arguably Nigeria’s best young talent- stated that, “It’s a token of N10,000 for the entire duration.
“Presently, there are about 12 children and we are expecting many more to come and register before the end of the clinic,” he added.
The vastly-experienced coach also believes that with such trainings, Nigeria’s future may have been secured in the game of tennis.
