A licensing coach and a representative of Building Community Through Tennis (BCTT), UK, Mr. Tunde Adefowora, has donated tennis kits and teaching aids to the University of Cape Coast Primary School at the school premises.
Mr. Tunde Adefowara said the donation was a result of discussions he had with Rev. Prof. Joshua Owusu-Sekyere of the Department of Agricultural Engineering, University of Cape Coast to support the school. He stated that the idea was to introduce tennis at the grassroots level to encourage children who normally would not have access to tennis.
He indicated that the goal of the BCTT is to bring more people into the game of tennis and to keep them playing for life and also to facilitate their growth.
Mr. Joseph Obeng, Assistant Headteacher of the University Primary School who received the items on behalf of the school thanked Mr. Tunde and BCTT for the kind gesture, saying the donation marked another milestone in the relationship between the Primary School and BCTT. ‘I wish to express our heartfelt appreciation for the donation, this will supplement what we have in sports and we promise it will be used profitably to produce future tennis stars in the country," he said.
Present at the presentation ceremony were the Physical Education Teachers of the school, Mr. Jerry Rockson and Frank Aboagye.
