BELIZE CITY–This past Saturday, November 8, several junior tennis players, ranging from ages 5 to15 years, participated in a tennis tournament hosted by the Belize Tennis Association at the Belize Pickwick Club tennis courts.
There were three different categories: Green/Advanced, Orange/Intermediate, and Red/Beginners. In the Green/Advanced category, Stefan Sosa took 1st place. Stefan Sosa edged Samron Pott, 3-1, in the semifinals. Harnadar Tut won 2nd place. He defeated Adrian Marshalleck in the second semifinals, 3-0. In the Finals, Stefan Sosa defeated Harnadar Tut, 4-0. Adrian Marshalleck was top scorer in the round robin, but did not manage to close out in the Semis. In the Orange/Intermediate category, which was double-elimination format, Alex Musa took 1st place and Devesh Hukmani took the 2nd place. Alex Musa did not lose a match. In the Red/Beginners category, Blake Lee’s consistency proved sufficient, as he came out on top, with Daniel Musa taking the runner-up position.
The Belize Tennis Association continues to focus on youth development in the sport of tennis, and it encourages all kids to keep practicing and learning the game of tennis. We also hope to see entries from Horizon Academy and St. Mary’s primary schools in our future tournaments, since they’ve now introduced tennis at their schools.
