NEW TENNIS PROGRAM
Wednesday 17th October 2012
Dreams really do become reality, if you only believe. The Antigua & Barbuda Tennis Association(ABTA) under the fine direction of its President Cordell Williams, is pleased to announce that the associations dream of starting a community tennis program has finally become a reality.
 
The ABTA in collaboration with CIBC First Caribbean Bank and the Ministry of Sports has officially signed off on a project to bring tennis to a few of the communities across the island.   The aim of this venture by all involved is to see tennis grow in our twin island state. 

To do this we decided to target areas with a large population (Liberta, Bolans and
Fort Road)  so that the development of our children between the ages of 5 and 10 years will foster talented juniors who can eventually represent Antigua & Barbuda on the international stage both at a team level and individual level.
 
First Caribbean International Bank has assisted over the years with the development of our junior national tennis players and has now seek to embark on this grass roots project, providing the necessary funding to see it off the ground.   

This pilot project hopes to encourage all children from the surrounding communities to learn to play the sport of Tennis.

Tennis like any other sport can be played for health purposes but the ABTA and we hope the players old and new will see tennis as their future- to either a professional career or an educational future.   This is a start and the Ministry of Education, Sports and Youth Affairs, CIBC First Caribbean Bank and the ABTA sees its potential.
