The secretary general of the Tanzania Tennis Association (TTA), Inger Njau, says the body has been happy with the recent decision taken by the National Sports Council (NSC) to appoint six officials to work on interim basis.
The team appointed by NSC last week would work with the three other officials of the body to organize an election.
The TTA has been running its operations on interim basis for the past 12 years with Dennis Makoi as chairman, Njau and treasurer Rashid Juma.
Njau said she and the rest of her colleagues would provide cooperation to the newly introduced officials in setting up the general election.
She said the arrival of the officials would boost the TTA operations as well as fast track the organization of the general election.
Njau said TTA has welcomed the six with open heart would be instrumental in organizing the general election.
Last Saturday, the NSC chairman Doiniz Malinzi appointed six people into the interim leadership of TTA.
The appointed officials are John Bura and Joseph Tango who would work as assistant chairman and secretary general, respectively.
Others appointed as executive members are Salum Mvita, Hassan Kassim, Ismail Omary and Vicky Chuwa.
The NSC chairman said the six have been included in the running of TTA while organising the general election.
Malinzi gave TTA leadership 30 days to change and register its drafted constitution with register of sports associations.
Another task is to change the body’s name from the previous Tanzania Lawn Tennis Association to Tanzania Tennis Association.
The officials have also been tasked with the duty of coordinating to have members of the association from all regions for the body to have a national outlook.
