Player Wants Attention For Grassroots Tennis


Nigerian national tennis player, Adediwura Akinbade, has made a clarion call to the  Federal Government to help revive the sport in the country.

Adediwura, in an interview with P.M. Sports, stated that in his eight years as a  tennis player, the standard of the game has been deteriorating due to lack of proper  supervision from the authorities.

“I am 21 years and in my eight years of playing I have  not seen much growth in  Nigerian tennis especially at the grassroots level.

Akinbade pleaded with private organisations to take up the responsibility of  reviving the game by sponsoring more grassroots tournaments in order to encourage  children and youths in the sport.
