The Tennis Section of the Victoria Garden City Recreational Club has come alive again, with the inaugural edition of the Noble Oil Tennis Championship, organized for members of the club alone.
Nigerian Tennis Live gathered that the tournament which is being sponsored by Mr. Mike Okparanta, the Group Managing Director of Noble Oil Nigeria Limited, was organized to reignite the love, unity and oneness among the club members.

The competition which started on Saturday, 1 September, was scheduled to end on Saturday, 8 September, but has suffered series of setbacks with the incessant rainfalls in Lagos State.
About 50 participants, both male and female for the Singles event, have been slugging it out inside the VGC Recreational Club and have set their sights on the top prize at the end of the tournament.
