Over 300 kids drawn from across the country are participating in the 3rd edition Chief J.O. Adeyemi-Bero U-11 and U-14 Memorial Junior Tennis Championship for boys and girls holding from September 10-15, 2018, at the Tennis Courts of the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.

Coordinator of the event, Kehinde Ajayi, said the 2018 edition which served off on Monday was aimed at discovering new talents for the country who would replace the retiring ones.

Event sponsor, Dr Adewunmi Adeyemi-Bero, said the Adeyemi-Bero’s love for Nigerian children and the need to discover their God-given talents was responsible for the continuous sponsorship of the junior tournament.

“My aim is to see Nigeria produce tennis legends like Novak Djokovic, Rafa Nadal, Serena Williams and even the latest sensation, Naomi Osaka in the nearest future.

“That is the gospel the Adeyemi-Bero’s family is preaching through the sponsorship of this annual youth tennis tournament,” he said.
