BUDDING tennis stars in Metro Manila get a chance to show their potentials as the two week-end second leg of the Cebuana Lhuillie Age Group Tennis series, now on its seventh year, opens this weekend, March 9-10, and concludes March 15 to 17 to the PhilAm Homes Tennis Club in Quezon City.

The 21-leg series that will run all the way until December, was launched last month in Kidapawan City, Cotabato and is open to all tennis players 18 years old and below who will be competing in different age groups with a chance to earn slots in the prestigious PCA Open later this year.

“We are holding a Manila leg for the first time. A group 5 level competition as part of the program’s objective of expanding the base of tennis, believing that the future of the Philippine tennis will always lie on the young players of today.” Said Cebuana Lhuillier President/CEO Jean Henri Lhuillier, a long time patron of Philippine sports and team manager of the Philippine Davis Cup team.

More than a hundred participants are expected to sign up for the tournament and for those interested, they can contact Rene Selmar at 0921-2714061, according to tournament director Mario Craiz.
