SCOOP: ASF Open Organizers Already Planning New Date For National Competition

Organizers of the ASF Open Tennis Championship may have started plans to ensure the competition is held early in 2024 after the initial disappointment.

Recall that the competition, initially billed to hold from Thursday, 23 November, 2023, was rescheduled at the last minute owing to a number of unresolved issues.

Tennis officials, players, administrators and the entire tennis body in Nigeria was stunned by the situation, and it raised a lot of eyebrows.

Consequently, an apology letter was written to the Nigeria Tennis Federation (NTF) and the players, about the anomalies experienced during this period.

But sources say there are chances the ASF Open may hold within the first quarter of 2024, as the organizers are reportedly desperate to get the NTF’s approval for the competition.
