Speaking to ghanatennis.org Rev father Sylvester Frimpong headmaster OLAG said, The purpose of this tournament is to encourage more people to be interested in tennis and also to meet friends from different parts of the country so that we can commemorate this year’s Muslim festival and to exercise our bodies because as the saying goes “sound mind lives in a sound body’, we need to be strong so that we can go back to our various places of work to be effective leaders in various fields.

Rev father Sylvester Frimpong added that, “The facilities available in the school, we want to offer younger people who live around Mamponteng the opportunity to join the club to be trained so that as we catch them young, they could be prepared to become professional tennis players who could play for Ghana.”

According to the President of Our Lady of Grace Tennis Club, Mr. John Asiamah Boamah, sports is all about training, and we have not been training consistently. That’s what caused our loss today, going forward, we will strategize as a club and will see results.
