Twellium Ghana LTD, a long standing sponsor of the McDan World Tennis Tour, have declared their commitment to the development of tennis in the country after a successful completion of this year's edition last Sunday.
According to the Marketing Director of the company, Ali Ajami, his outfit was excited at the level of tennis displayed during the seven-day tournament and pledged Twellium's commitment to ensuring the sport grows in the country.
Speaking to the media at the end of the McDan ITF World Tour last Sunday, Ajami commended the players for their professionalism throughout the tournament and blamed Ghana’s poor performance on lack of investment in the sport.
“I’m happy with the organization and the level of tennis we have seen the past seven days.
"I want to congratulate the McDan Foundation and everyone involved. Unfortunately Ghana could not win any laurel but I believe with the right investment we will produce a world champion soon," Mr Ajami said.
This year's tournament saw Great Britain’s Ryan James Storrie beating Benjamin Lock of Zimbabwe (6-4, 6-4) to win his first professional career title at the McDan ITF World Tour at the Accra Sports Stadium.
The Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, Perry Okudzeto, who pointed out the need for sponsorship for all sporting disciplines, noted that the government would provide support for any sporting event which was guaranteed sponsorship from the corporate world.
However, the Executive chairman of the McDan Group, Dr Daniel McKorley, said " l promised Ghana two things- bringing the ITF tournament to Ghana and moving Ghana tennis from Zone III to Zone II and that is my next target".
