IC ROD LAVER AFRICAN JUNIOR CHALLENGE

IC ROD LAVER AFRICAN JUNIOR CHALLENGE

We will be hosting the above event from 11-13 October at the Gauteng East Tennis headquarters in Benoni with four teams competing. As the only IC movement on the continent it is encumbered upon us to host this event every second year.

This year we are pleased to say that after many questions were raised and answered to the satisfaction of the SA Embassy in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian team has been granted visas and they will be taking part for the first time.

Zimbabwe, who have traditionally played in this qualifying event were unable to field a team so Botswana have been invited in their place.

As we have been able to involve Tennis SA in this event for the first time, they will be fielding a team from their various Growthpoint development hubs which should be a competitive side. Our own IC team will make up the four teams.

We will also be staging a clinic which will see children from four of the African Townships in and around the Benoni taking part in a coaching and tournament environment and also give them the opportunity of seeing some of the continents better junior players.

The SA IC team that will take part is;

BOYS;

Carl Roothman

Mikaeel Woodman

GIRLS;

Leigh van Zyl

Naledi Manyube

COACH:

Terry Schweitzer
