Cayman youngsters are offered the chance to get on court with one of the most famous names in tennis this weekend.
South African ace Wayne Ferreira, who starred on the international circuit as a top doubles and singles player throughout the Nineties, leads a group of world-class players who will be rallying with Cayman juniors on Saturday 3 November morning.
Starting at 9am, the event is open to all children between the age of four and ten, no previous experience necessary, says David Berry of the Tennis Federation of the Cayman Islands.
It coincides with the formal opening of four new mini courts, named the Paul Howard Junior Community Courts, which are to be used in future for all the federation’s community 10-and-under tennis coaching.
Stars slated to join Ferreira and Cayman kids on Saturday include the world’s number-one ranked under-14 junior, Ali ‘Tornado’ Black and Megan Moulton-Levy, a US doubles specialist.
The Paul Howard Courts are on the east side of West Bay Road, next to Villa Royale, just north of the Yacht Club road.
