“All preparations for the event are ready, we are just waiting for the day, we are happy with the large turn up of players for the coming event,” he noted.

“This will be the seventh year that BQ Contractors Limited sponsors a tennis tournament at DGC. We are extremely thankful to BQ Contractors Limited for their generosity, we also thank the DGC management for their support,” he said.

He said the players will compete in age categories of U-6, U-8, U-10, U-12, U-14 and U-18.
