La Constance Kids Tennis Center Celebrates 6th Anniversary

The La Constance Kids Tennis Center of Akropong Akuapem has celebrated its 6th Anniversary with an Invitational Tennis Tournament on Saturday, the 16th of February.

The program was sponsored by Dr. David Gboloo, a Medical Doctor from the USA.

The Invited players came from the Pilanzy Tennis Academy, Accra, under Coach Phillip Pilanzy and Stadium Tennis Academy also of Accra under Coach Lawer

The Kids displayed exceptional tennis skill and immense enthusiasm.

In the under 12 Boys final, Tijani Abanga from La Constance won over Andre Nikoi of Pilancy Tennis Academy. In the under 12 Girls final, Jesuscia Aquah of La Constance won by beating her counterpart Gifty Awunibisi also of La Constance

In the Under 14 girls, Helena Hammond of Accra Stadium Tennis Academy won over Veronica Boatema of La Constance Tennis Academy. In the under 14 Boys Kwasi Amoako of La Constance won against Eric Yeboah also of La Constance Tennis Center

Dr. Kwame Aniapam Boafo, founder of the La Constance Tennis Center congratulated the Kids and said he was grateful once again to Coach Glenn Adu Agyei, Assistant Coach Elizabeth Opoku Mankosah and Administrator Issac Offei for their continued dedication to making the Center sustainable. He commended the Stadium and the Pilanzy Tennis Academies for honoring the invitation to participate in the tournament.
