The Chief Executive Officer of McDan Group of Companies, Mr Daniel McKorley, has donated a Mercedes-Benz bus to the Ghana Tennis Federation (GTF) to facilitate its work.

The presentation was made at a short ceremony at the end of the men’s final of the McDan West African Open Championship held at the Frank Ofori centre court of the Accra Sports Stadium last Saturday.

According to Mr McKorley, the donation is part of his company’s efforts to support tennis in the country.

He pledged his commitment to support the federation in future tournaments to help develop local talents for international competitions.


In recent years, McDan Group of Companies has supported the GTF in areas of financing, assisting players and developing the sport in the country through sponsorship of the tournament.

 

A few years ago, it bailed out the GTF by paying the $10,000 the local federation owed in affiliation fees to the International Tennis Federation (ITF) which resulted in Ghana being banned from participating in international competitions. — GNA
