Junior tennis Starlets take to court for nat’l champs

Following their participation in the recently held 8th ASEAN School Games in Thailand, Tep Timothy, Chheang Vannasith, Khleang Ponlok and Leng Sarinreach will try to make that competitive experience count when they take to the court in the fourth National Junior Tennis Championship beginning at the NTC today.

Leng Sarinreach, 13, who took the under-14 and 18 singles titles in the previous edition is a clear favourite to do well, if not repeat victory in one or both of the age categories.

It is in the top heavy U18 boys category that Sarinreach will run into Timothy, Vannasith and Ponlok, who formed Cambodia’s Junior Davis Cup squad earlier this year.

In the girls 18 and under division, Ho Sreynoch and Hour Sreypov will continue to compete against one another to see who will finish in the top spot before the WTA Future Stars deadline in September.

The Singapore event that showcases the best under-14 and under-16 female players in Asia is likely to be held in October.

Hagar Restaurant & Catering will once again provide meals for the participants of the National Junior Tennis Championship.
