ATA News of 2016

So the year 2016 is drawing to a close and pleased to say was a great year for tennis activity in Ghana and for our friends Caribbean Coaching over in St. Lucia, with our Facebook page swathed in news and photos from how our aid has increased the participation of underprivileged third world youths in Africa and the Caribbean.

In case you missed it all, here's a sum up of the year 2016 of how your tennis donations and support impacted our friends in far off lands...

Ghana

At the National Sports College, Winneba in Ghana, our main benefactors over the years, ran an Under 12,14 and 16 tournament where Ghana No.1 player Jeff Bagerbaseh donated his racket grips as his contribution to his Alma-mater.

St Lucia

In 2015, ATA donated new Wilson rackets and Head tennis balls from Sutton Tennis Academy, London UK to Caribbean Coaching in St. Lucia. One of these donated rackets was given to a young up and coming player called Ishmel Moise who has been working with the volunteer coaches and and United Through Sport Caribbean. With his new racket he swung his way into the Semi Finals in the KIA National Independence Tennis Tournament and secured the title of Boys Under 12's Champion in the 5th Annual Easter Junior Tennis Tournament.
