After a long summer and only one competition left for the Under 13 players, our athletes will now look towards getting back to school for September. 
 
We thank all the athletes who all did really will during this summer tour, competing against some of the best junior tennis players around the world, indicating that they can be competitive.
 
We thank the parents who through competition understand the importance of this stage of their children’s development, we also thanks the institutions like the NOC, Raeburn's Generator Services, Harney Motors, Caribbean Alliance and ABTA who assisted with offsetting these athletes’ expenses.  We thank the Ministry of Sports or exempting travel taxes.
 
The tennis season is not over, it is continuous and the ABTA trusts that as we move forward, corporate Antigua even in these difficult times will see the benefits of these juniors’ athletes competing on the world stage.
