Barely two months after participating in their first tournament of 2018, wheelchair tennis players are set for another tennis tournament, Nigerian Tennis Live has gathered.
In February, the physically challenged players were intrigued to have played in their first official tournament of the year, as Mr. Tochukwu Okeke, the Vice President of the Mainland Tennis Club, sponsored a tournament held at the tennis section of the National Stadium, Surulere.
Alex Adewale needed about three hours before seeing off closest rival and another great Nigerian wheelchair tennis star, Wasiu Yusuf, to win the inaugural event.

Information made available to our correspondent revealed that the tournament will hold from 16 -20 April, 2018.
