Kep serving up tennis competition action

The Tennis Academy of Kep will organise a four-day local open men’s singles and doubles tennis tournament from tomorrow at the Villa Romonea court.

According to event organiser Sokphal Ngo-Sisowath, attractive prizes are on offer and players of any age with any skill level can take part.

“As a means of encouragement we have chosen six promising young players to participate in the event,” Ngo-Sisowath told the Post.

These include Chem Sophors and Sen Sophon from Kep’s ASPECA orphanage, Svay Voth and Ngoun Rameun of Ayravady School in Kep, and Timothy Tep and Titi from Phnom Penh.

To cap off the competition, a barbecue party for the players has been arranged at Kepmandou Lounge Bar from 9pm on Sunday.

Registration closes at 9pm today with the entry fee for singles set at $8 and $2 each for doubles.

The Tennis Federation of Cambodia has donated $200 and a box of tennis balls in its support for the tournament.
