The third edition of the Champions Bowl Tournament, a juvenile tennis event put together by Zion Management Africa Limited (ZMAL), comes off on Saturday and Sunday at the clay courts of the Ghana Tennis Club at Adabraka.
The two-day tournament, according to the organisers, will serve as an entry platform to the World Masters Championship Bowl, an international junior tennis tournament scheduled for Croatia from September 17 to 24.
The categories to be competed in are boys and girls Under-12, U-14, as well as U-16 and winners from the various categories will embark on the trip to Croatia.
In view of that, junior tennis players, aged 12 to 16, from regional tennis clubs and schools all over the country are invited to pitch their strength and skills against each other to determine who will represent the nation at the annual event.
According to Mr David Derhnick-Coffie, Chief Executive Officer of ZMAL, their aim is to raise young talents in Ghana and Africa at large for the Champions Bowl competitions.
“This is the third year for the tournament and it’s been very successful every year so we hope to improve on the success this year”.
“Tennis, like other sports in Ghana can serve as a unifying force for people of different socio-political backgrounds and it’s for this reason that we seek to use the Champion Bowl Tennis to help our young talents”, he added.
He named Wilson International Sports Brand, SIC Life, Indomie Ghana, Melcom Group of Companies, Ocean Spring Mineral Water and Innolink Ghana as corporate sponsors of the tournament.
