Junior national tennis tourney from Friday

The Tennis Federation of Cambodia will organise the Junior National U11 Championship for boys and girls at the National Training Centre from this Friday to Sunday.

It is the third in a series of four such tournaments the TFC has scheduled this year.

To encourage children of all skill levels and backgrounds to participate in larger numbers, the federation has decided not to charge entry fees.

“This U11 Series has really taken off. This is our idea of boosting grassroots development. The number of entries for these events is steadily growing and so is the competitive spirit among the players,” TFC secretary-general TFC Tep Rithivit told the Post yesterday.

“It was heartening to see good performances from a couple of players who started tennis at orphanages in Kep less than a year ago. Now there will be at least two dozen children from Kep playing here.”

Meanwhile, tournament director Chea Poev expects the number of entries for this event to touch a new high.

Registration is open until noon tomorrow. For details, contact Chea Poev (012 824 314) or Khith Sipin (012 889 001).
