Our correspondent gathered that the event will hold on Saturday, 13 March, 2021 in Abeokuta, the Ogun State Capital.

According to him, the meeting will among other things, focus on “rendering account of stewardship of the last 2 years by this current administration.

“Refresher course for one hour, election of officers to steer NTUA affairs for the next 2 years.”

Mr. Ijaola also explained that a minimum of 50 umpires are expected nationwide, while adding that the: “NTF as the body governing tennis activities in Nigeria is involved in all that we do.

“We have informed both the President and the Secretary about the AGM and they have given their approval and support.
