My son, CF, has been chosen to represent Gauteng North in the annual Junior Tennis Inter-Provincial tournament during July 2019. This is the 2nd time he has been honored this way, and we are very proud of him. He is playing in the under-12 section.
3 tournaments will be played in Gauteng before the Inter-Provincial tournament. Another few tournaments will be held after the Inter-Pro. These are big junior tournaments sponsored by Wilson, Baseline Racquets, Pro-Kennex and Growthpoint, where he will be competing with the best juniors in the country, to maximise his ranking points.
CF has a passion and talent for playing tennis. Although he is short in stature, he makes up for it with his big heart and a will to win. We wouldn't want him to miss out on any opportunities.
I have been asked to give an idea of how the raised funds will be spend for the sake of transparenncy, which I am happy to do.
The following item will be covered with the donations - Breakdown:
1. Entry into all tournaments for the rest of 2019
2. Gauteng North team gear (shorts, shirts, socks, cap, etc)
3. Gauteng North team track suite
4. Coaching costs for 3rd and 4th term
5. Gauteng North squad costs for terms 3&4
6. Costs for annual Primary Schools tennis tournament in Bethlehem in August
6. 2 Tennis racquets (he has been playing for the last 2 and a halve years with the same junior racquets and it needs to be upgraded)
7. Stringing X6
8. Tennis shoes X3 - unfortunately they don't last long
9. Travel and accommodation expenses (varies)
Any additional funds received will stay in CF's account for any future tennis expenses.
