KFC Tennis Tournament-FINGER LICKING GOOD!
The annual KFC tennis tournament was played over the weekend of 3 & 4 December 2016 at Kershaw Park tennis centre in Pietermaritzburg.
It was a full field of budding tennis stars from U8’s to U18’s.
With a scorching day of singles played on Saturday in temperatures rising above 35 degrees the players were well hydrated by aQuellé flavoured waters and Wedgewood Nougat’s Racefood, to keep the energy levels up.
There was some top class tennis on display. The energetic participants played their hearts out and impressed the organizer Chris Folker from CF tennis with their ability, progress and above all sportsmanship. This event just keeps growing, which is very encouraging.
Hats off to the Kershaw Park Tennis Centre, for their wonderful facilities.
Hailing from across Kwazulu Natal, young tennis players battled it out for the honors of a KFC / CF tennis trophy.
Everyone experienced wonderful support from parents, grandparents and family members, which added to this event’s success.
Thank you to Matt Forbes from KFC for supporting the sport and keep tennis alive and thriving in the KZN Midlands.
