THE CF Tennis Club Junior Winter Tournament was played over the weekend at Kershaw Park tennis centre in Pietermaritzburg.

Tennis stars from U8s to U18s took part in perfect wintery, sunny conditions, where top-class tennis was on display.

Participants impressed the
organiser Chris Folker from CF Tennis with their ability, progress, and above all, sportsmanship.

A special mention was made to two development tennis stars who played like stars in the open section - Zakhele Hlela and Siyabonda Mbele - being an inspiration to other players.

Hailing from Durban, Ladysmith, Winterton and locally, young tennis players battled it out for the
honors of a CF Tennis trophy and various CF Tennis branded prizes.

Everyone experienced wonderful support from parents, grandparents and family members, which added to this event’s success.
