At the venue last Wednesday, Dr Andre Oddoye, first son of G.T. Oddoye, expressed satisfaction with the performance of the players after the round-robin matches, as well as the general organisation of the competition.
"We hope to organise this annually to give these young ones the opportunity to showcase their talent and probably get the next tennis star in Ghana."
The tournament, which is organised in memory of the late G.T Oddoye, former chaiman of the Ghana Tennis Federation, is sponsored by Akosombo Textiles Limited (ATL).
