The Ghana Tennis Federation (GTF), President, Mr. Isaac Aboagye Duah, has asked stakeholders to demonstrate a high level of commitment as the federation aims to return the sport to its glory days.
In his view, such commitment and dedication to service could lead to more partnerships with corporate entities to organise competitions and develop the sport.
Mr Duah made the call at the GTF’s 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) last Saturday at the 4 Garrison Officers’ Mess Tennis Club in Kumasi.
The AGM, the first to be held outside Accra in the past decade, recorded a massive turn out by delegates from across the regions in the country.
Addressing delegates at the event, the GTF President commended delegates for their sacrifices towards the growth of tennis in Ghana.
He said, many had supported with finance, material and time towards the development of the sport in their various regions.
“Following the support from stakeholders, the country made a maiden appearance at the Bille Jean King Cup and improved at the Davis Cup. This could be linked to the partnership with foundations, such as PM Sports, McDan Foundation, Tennis Foundation Ghana, Hope Performance and other affiliates,” he stated.
The Congress proposed an amendment of the constitution which saw delegates overwhelmingly voting to accept all the proposed changes excerpt two which were the inclusion of tennis clubs as members and the election of a General Secretary.
There was also a discussion on preparatory requirements for the 2022 Confederation of African Tennis (CAT) AGM to be held at the Accra City Hotel after Ghana won the bid to host the event for the first time.
According to the President, the federation was rallying all stakeholders to contribute towards a successful event.
