A new worldwide initiative put
forward by the International Tennis Federation – ‘Tennis Tens’ – aimed at
youngsters aged ten and younger has recently been adopted by Cayman’s tennis
federation. It is a marvellous initiative because tennis organisers and coaches
recognise the need to introduce players at an exceptionally young age to ensure
the kids reach their potential later on.
Many of the world’s top players
were already in a tennis programme before they reached ten. Ritz-Carlton tennis
coach Thomas Neuert will be heading the programme.
“With the very generous support of
Cayman National we are now in a position to offer this to the kids of Cayman.
This new programme will greatly complement the other programs currently
underway by providing a better structure for development as well as provide a
forum for kids to be active and healthy,” said Richard Harrison on behalf of
“Cayman National is pleased to
partner with the Tennis Federation of the Cayman Islands in support of this new
component of their programme,” said Claudia Welds, Cayman National’s corporate
communication senior executive.
“We recognise that participation in
sports provides opportunities for leadership and socialisation, as well as
development of skills in our youth, as well as offering them an exhilarating,
satisfying and rewarding way to interact with their peers in the community.
We look forward to the start and
success of this programme.”
