The Ghana Tennis Club at Adabraka in Accra will Saturday host juvenile players in the community for a one-day tennis clinic meant to horn their skills as well as to tap talent.
The event, eighth edition, is sponsored by Mr. Robert Amartey, a member of the United States Professional Tennis Registry with support from the Sportsmen Tennis Club and the Enrichment Center in Boston Massachusetts in the United States.
The players, aged 7-14, will be drawn from the Adabraka and Kaneshie communities and will be taken through basic tennis lessons, including ground stroke progression, ball direction and ball control among others.
According Mr. Amartey, who is currently on holidays in the country, the participants will receive customised T-Shirts, hats, rackets, balls and racket strings to enhance their participation in the clinic which is expected to be intensive.
“This year’s edition will be very intensive because we want to organise a singles’ competition for the best performers at the end of the clinic and the winners will be duely rewarded”, he said.
He will be assisted by coaches Sam Boamah, Theophilus Teye and Mr Robert Tetteh of the 4 Garrison Tennis Club in Kumasi as resource persons for the clinic which will start at 9 a.m.
