Sponsors challenge participants to raise tennis standard
Sponsors of the yearly NNPC/Chevron Tennis Clinic have challenged the participants to employ what they learnt at the three-week event to build a career and also raise the standard of Nigerian tennis.
Speaking at the end of the clinic held at the Lagos Lawn Tennis Club, Onikan, at the weekend, General Manager, Government and Public Affairs of Chevron Nigeria Limited, Deji Haastrup, said the oil firm was impressed with the players’ performance and behaviour during the clinic, coordinated by a former Chairman of the Nigeria Cricket Association, Chris Enahoro.
While acknowledging the support of the various organisations and individual, who have jointly contributed to the success of the tennis programme, Haastrup said the high turn-out of players on the first day of the clinic showed that it has achieved its prime objective of exposing kids to the various aspects of the game.
He challenged the participants to improve on the foundation that has been laid for them at the NNPC/Chevron Tennis Clinic.
