THE Zambia Tennis Association (ZTA) has given Ndola Tennis Club rights to host the Zambia Open Tennis Junior
Championship billed for next month.
The event, set for September 9, is expected to attract a pool of young players from across the country.
ZTA general secretary Masautso Zimba confirmed the development in an interview in Ndola on Monday.
“We have given Ndola Tennis Club the rights to host the Zambia Open Tennis Junior Championship on September 9. We are confident they will stage a successful event,” Zimba said.
He said the dates were arrived at after a ZTA executive committee meeting in Kalulushi over the weekend.
Zimba said Ndola Tennis Club will spearhead the sourcing of sponsors for the tournament.
Ndola has in recent years hosted a number of high-profile tournaments such as Zambia Open, Zambia Closed and Torkim Investment Top Eight Championship.
