The Tennis Federation of Cambodia organised a sponsors’ day at the Nat-ional Training Centre yesterday to enable its benefactors and partners to meet, and interact, with members of the national team bound for the 26th SEA Games in Indonesia next month.

“The idea is to keep all our partners in the loop so they can get a clear perspective on our preparat-ions,” TFC secretary-general Tep Rithivit told the Post.

“On the other hand, players also get to know who their supporters are. It’s a sort of family union.”

After watching a training session under national coach Braen Aneiros, the invitees had a tete-a-tete on court with team members including Andrea Ka, a new recruit from France. The other members of the national team are Bun Kenny, Orn Sambath, Long Samneang and ass-istant coach Chea Pouv.

“We wish you well for the SEA Games,” Ezecom marketing manager Inge Olde Rikkert said, adding that the TFC’s main sponsors would continue to support all of their grassroots programs.

NagaWorld events marketing manager Yeo Wee Han said:  “We are happy to be associated with tennis, which has seen so much progress this year.”

One of the federation’s long-time partners, Comin Khmere, was represented by chairman Dominique Catry, whose association with Cambodian tennis goes back to the days of his late friend Tep Khunnah, the father of Tep Rithivit.

“Dominique Catry has been a steadfast supporter of Cambodian tennis for decades,’’ Tep Rithivit said.

“We owe him our gratitude for his personal contribution to the installation of flooodlights on Court No 2.”

Catry said he would be happy to be part of Cambodian tennis.
