National junior tennis tourney to be biggest yet

Record entries mark the Fourth National Junior Tennis Tournament rolling into action at the National Training Center today.

With players from Siem Reap and Battambang, who missed out on the third edition, returning to the competition, the field is likely to be the biggest ever assembled.

As many as 72 players have already signed up for the three-day event to be contested in various age groups.

Many of the winners from the previous tournament will be back to reclaim their titles.

The youngest member of the National squad, 16-year old Delton Sophana Kim, who won the under 18 singles with a measure of comfort will again hit the court as much needed preparation for his proposed ITF Junior Circuit trip to Indonesia in the coming weeks.
