P&P Insurance Brokers Tennis Camp starts July 9
The P&P Insurance Brokers Tennis Camp for juniors is here again! This event features high on the Guyana Lawn Tennis Association (GLTA) activity calendar since its re-establishment nine years ago in 2004 when it was determined that more juniors need to be exposed to the sport though a fun activity before they join a tennis club for further development.
Mr. Bish Panday of P&P who has sponsored this event for eight years since 2005 is passionate about sports as a developmental tool for young children and he has pledged continuous support for annual camps such as these.
He continues to show his appreciation for the quality of the activities camp as well as the large number of children who participate and are able to play tennis and compete at the conclusion of the camp.
Each year there are 60-80 children who participate and many find themselves continuing to play the sport. Most of the advanced junior players currently at the top of their game were once participants in this great event.
They have all developed their game initially through the Park Players Tennis Club which took full advantage of this activity from the onset under the guidance of former National Coach Debbie Bunbury and National Coach Shelly Daly-Ramdyhan.
The Park Players Tennis Club along with the Non-Pareil and Roraima Tennis Clubs are all currently operating out of the Racquet Centre at Woolford and Camp Streets. Other clubs with budding junior programs are Le Ressouvenir Tennis Club and Diamond Tennis Club.
