THE annual KFC tennis tournament was played over the weekend at Kershaw Park tennis centre, in Pietermaritzburg, by a full field of budding tennis stars from U8 to U18. The event drew young tennis players from all over KZN in preparation for the coastal tour ending in Cape Town in the coming weeks.

The event kicked off with some exhilarating singles matches on Saturday.

The players played under extreme conditions, with the on-court temperature touching 40 degrees Celsius.

A big thank you to aQuelle for keeping the children hydrated with some refreshing new flavours of their water.

The tennis on display was top class, giving the spectators some enthralling matches to watch. The energetic participants played their hearts out and impressed the organiser, Chris Folker from CF Tennis, with their ability, progress and, above all, sportsmanship.

Hats off to the Kershaw Park Tennis Centre for their wonderful facilities.

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

Thank you to Bronwyn Taylor from KFC for supporting the sport and keeping tennis alive and thriving in the KZN Midlands.

Their contribution of T-shirts and amazing trophies for the players was much appreciated and well received at the prize-giving.
