Tennis Series continues
Namibia’s PTA Tennis Series continued in style at the tennis fields of the Windhoek High School (WHS) in the capital last weekend.
A total of 16 players went head-to-head on the three available playing categories. The PTA Tennis Series is the only series of tennis tournaments in Namibia where the participants play according to skill level and not their age.
In the beginner’s category, Mike Kambonde continued where he left of during the first event of the season. The youngster, who secured the third overall place in this division during last year’s edition, edged past Faith Kahuure (2nd) and Megano Sheeya (3rd) to take home the much celebrated win.
Meanwhile Eila Kambonde and Jamilla Hungamo sustained their rivalry in the mini division. In February it was Kambonde who took top honours. However, this time around, it was Hungamo who kept an upper hand to be crowned the winner. Kambonde still held on to second place with Arnaud Marais in third.
In other action, Brandon Maasdorp was outstanding in the intermediate category. He cruised to first place, leaving Lorenzo Kotze and Taimi Nashiku in second and third respectively.
At this tournament, all participants collected points for the PTA Tennis Ranking once again. Throughout the series, players accumulate ranking points on a 12 month rolling basis with great prizes for the overall winners of the various playing categories up for grabs at the end of the year.
