JUNIOR DOUBLES RESULTSMonday 11th February 2013
Another festive competition day as the ABTA’s first Jr. Doubles tournament kicked off on the tennis courts of Halcyon by Rex Resort.
Though the tournament was deemed successful, the tournament saw a low turnout with only two clubs represented; Halcyon Tennis club and Old road fund tennis programme.
The girls doubles champions Ashley Bersma & Shereese Henry (Halcyon Tennis Club) reaped their success with the defeat of Chante Francis & Hannah Sternhagen ( Halcyon Tennis Club) in three (3) sets 4-1, 4-5(6-8), 4-2. The boys doubles champions Cordell Williams jr. & Justice Christopher (Halcyon Tennis Club) made an easy win over Old Road Fund’s Frankie Smith & Jamali Irish 4-1, 4-1.
The ABTA thanks tournament sponsors Cool & Smooth and Halcyon Tennis Club for providing the awards for our athletes, tournament director Nadine Fuller and ABS television for giving us some tournament coverage.
As the February tournament schedule continues, the ABTA encourages our athletes both in the private clubs and the schools tennis initiative to come out and be apart of the Old Road Funds’ Tennis 10s tournament, scheduled for February 16th, 2013; tournament sponsored by PineHill and Colombian Emeralds. We also encourage our Under 16 girls to prepare as the Girls 16 & Under Open is just around the corner (23- Feb-2013).
The ABTA encourages corporate Antigua to be a part of the Associations competitive season and the development of our nation’s junior athletes.
