Ndanusa Hails Wheelchair Players


President of Nigeria Tennis Federation, NTF, Engr. Sani Ndanusa, has hailed the performance of Nigeria’s representatives at the tennis event of the just concluded Paralympic Games in London.

Ndanusa told Tennis Special that the exposure the players had from the Games would help their careers.

“The players performed very well under the circumstance and we’re very proud of them. Their performance wasn’t below par and I’m sure they’d have learnt one or two things, which will help them in subsequent competitions. This is a major reason they went for the tournament,” the President of Nigeria Olympic Committee, NOC said.
