The final of this year’s Wichtech Individual and team tennis championship which started on Monday with 64 participants will come to a close today at the Ikoyi Club tennis section.
Sponsor of the competition, Mr. Chido Nwankwo, said he was satisfied with what he had seen so far and hope to continue sponsoring the competition.
“The fact that the number of participants had increased in the last three years of Wichtech Ltd’s sponsorship shows that value had been added to the competition,” Nwankwo said.
Games Captain, Tennis Section, Akeem Mustafa said in spite of the competitiveness expected at the tourney, fitness and bonding of members was the ultimate aim.
“There are a number of other tournaments coming up to keep members fit, healthy and build a bond through tournaments and tennis tours to different parts of the world with other clubs of similar status and this year will not be different. The idea is to ensure that members play competitive tourneys, raise the standard of the game and competitiveness. But even within the competition, the fact that we are a recreation club is not lost.
“There are various prizes for grabs. Aside giant trophies, winners would go home with vouchers to pick up things at mega plaza and Park & Shop.
