Windhoek, Namibia – Trustco Group Holdings, in proud partnership with the Namibia Tennis Association (NTA), will step onto the court once again the weekend of 24 to 25 September, for the annual Trustco NTA Junior Tournament 2021. With an increasing number of entries due to the ever-growing number of junior players in the country, the event will be hosted at multiple venues, such as the Police Tennis Club, Central Tennis Courts, DTS courts as well as SKW. The playoffs and round robin will start at 14h00 on Friday, with the semi-finals scheduled as from 08h00 on Saturday, and the finals from 11h00, at the various venues.
The Trustco NTA Junior Tournament is one of two major junior tournaments sponsored by Trustco every year, as part of the longstanding relationship between the group and the NTA. “Christine Mboma and Beatrice Masilingi’s success on the global front certainly seems to have inspired our youth”, noted Neville Basson, Head of Public Relations and Corporate Communications at Trustco. “On every tennis court, they seem to have a spring in their step! Trustco will support our juniors as it has always done and cheer them on like never before!”
This tournament serves as the lead-in to the prestigious and final juniors tennis tournament for the year, the Trustco NTA Junior Masters 2021, set to be hosted in the capital city later this year. The upcoming Trustco NTA Junior Tournament 2021 is set to be a weekend of passion and grit from the players, eagerly supported by their
enthusiastic parents and supporters. The tournament also serves as the perfect precursor for the upcoming Southern African Team Championships, to which our under 12s have been invited to by the Confederation of African Tennis. This prestigious tournament is scheduled for 12 to 16 October 2021, in Harare, Zimbabwe.
NTA’s Chairperson of Junior Tennis Namibia, Santie van der Walt, could hardly contain her excitement at the upcoming schedule for junior players. “Trustco’s continual support and development of tennis amongst our youth remains unparalleled. We, as the NTA, cannot thank them enough for the direction and creative execution of their tournaments. We will take our players to Zimbabwe with confidence!”
Trustco Group wishes the NTA and all players an outstanding tournament. We urge parents, tennis enthusiasts as well as spectators to not only continually support Namibia’s junior players, but also to abide by the COVID-19 regulations as set out by the Namibian Government during this tournament.
