In an exclusive chat with Naija Tennis Special, Mr. Kienka informed that, “the players’ standard has improved dramatically and everybody is aware of that.
“You can also see that in the recent successes recorded by the young ones who were able to defeat their more experienced counterparts at the Dala tournament and how effective they are now.
“I believe that there is room for improvement with subsequent tournaments and the continuation of the NCC Tennis League.
“We are really grateful to our sponsors and believe that they will do more for us in the raquet games.”
