The Guyana Lawn Tennis Association (GLTA)-sanctioned 9th P and P insurance junior tennis camp will be officially launched today at the National Gymnasium, Mandela Avenue.
The camp which caters for players between the ages of 6-18 will be held at two venues in Georgetown from the 9th to the 12th of July.
The National Gymnasium will accommodate players from the 6-11 age range while those players from the 12-18 age range will play at the National Racquet Centre on Woolford Avenue.
There are still spaces available for persons interested in joining the camp. Vice President of the GTA, Grace McCalman, noted that this camp is usually a successful one and has seen young players moving on to bigger endeavours.
Just recently one of the successes of the P and P Junior initiative Afruica Gentle was victorious at the recently completed Antigua Junior tournament.
Proprietor of P and P insurance company and tennis enthusiast, Bish Panday has always supported junior tennis and as such has committed to support camps of this nature in the future.
He has also challenged young tennis players to become great student athletes, who not only should focus on their books but also challenge themselves in sports. At the end of the camp the players will be competing for trophies and other prizes.
