Cebuana Lhuillier-sponsored tennis tournament to change lives for the 6th year


 

 

The Cebuana Lhullier Age group tennis tournament is set to return this year with a vengeance after five consecutive successful tilts in the past years.

                 

The Cebuana Lhuillier-backed singles and doubles age group tournament is the first of its kind. In partnership with local tennis clubs and local government units, it will have 16 legs nationwide starting April. This is the most number of tournament series to date, which escalated from five tournaments to 16.

                 

The 16 tournament legs for junior tennis players from Grades 2 to 5 will be held in Butuan, Surigao, Bais, Boracay, Aklan, Bohol, Ormoc, Iligan, Marawi, Ozamis, Tubod, Camiguin, Midsayap, Gingoog, Cagayan De Oro, and Davao.

                 

The tournament has paved the way for the success of many young and talented tennis players. Among them are Jeson Petrombon, who ranked the highest in the International Tennis Federation Juniors tournament, Marian Capadocia, Roxanne Resma, Jorou Librodo, Lynetter Palasan, Denise Jimenez, Spenser Sagrado, and Scooby Casino. Moreover, talented players like Leandro Fernandez, Lance Cinco, Angel Wegmann, Kent Tacan, Andre Banate , Nikki Duque were granted scholarships from schools like the University of the Philippines , De La Salle University, and Ateneo de Manila University after being discovered in the tournament.
