Congratulations to all the players from Gauteng Central that participated in this event, we are extremely proud of you.
Message to all our High Schools players from Wendy Addison – Administrator of GCTA:
Gauteng Central Interprovincial Under 15 and 19 tennis teams.
On behalf of the Executive Committee of the Gauteng Central Tennis Association I should like to commend each of you on the results achieved at the SA Schools Interprovincial tournament in Pretoria last week.
The final position of winning both age groups and being the strongest province in the country is wonderful. Just as important was that every player behaved impeccably both on and off the court showing that good sportsmanship and manners are held very highly by this Province.
My grateful thanks go to our coaches and managers, Lauren, Marius and Lloyd who organised everything that was required both on and off the court leaving you, the players to concentrate on winning the tournament.
I am extremely proud that players of your calibre represented Gauteng Central with such commitment and purpose and my thanks for being such successful ambassadors for junior tennis in this Province.
