Leedway Tennis Clinic thrills kids at Ikoyi Club
Children from ages seven to 18 have gathered at the Ikoyi Club 1938 to learn the rudiments of tennis courtesy of the Leadway Children Tennis Clinic, which started over a week ago at the tennis section of the club.
The catch them young event, which is a partnership initiative between Ikoyi Club Tennis Section and Leadway Assurance, is aimed at engaging the young ones during their summer holiday programme and teaching them the basics of the game.
According to the Tennis section chairman, Mr. Bimbo Okubena, 73 children are taking part in the competition.
There are six categories in the annual tennis clinic, including Boys U-7, U-12, U-18 and Girls U-7, U-12 and U18.
“We are always excited working with the kids at Ikoyi Club because they are the leaders of tomorrow. Bringing them to play tennis will also make them relax after so much school work in the past few weeks.
“It is also great to work with Leedway Assurance again. The CEO, Tunde Odukale, is a wonderful man and so I am optimistic that the competition will get better every year.
“We have great coaches working with these young one to at least give them the foundation needed in the game,” Okubena said.
Some of the players already making waves at the Ikoyi Club 1938 courts are boys like David Oresanya, Ademide Odutayo, Daniel Oresanya, Kachi Okwuosa and Timi Pearse. Two girls Mofope Akinyemi and Ayomipo Ayorinde have been impressive so far.
