ABA continues to support ITF Juniors 2018
In continuous support of the tennis movement in Cambodia, ABA Bank stood as the main sponsor for the International Tennis Federation (ITF) Juniors Tournament, which was hosted by Tennis Federation of Cambodia in Phnom Penh from December 1 – 8, 2018. The event aims at improving the foundation for tennis players in Asia and providing more competition for both junior and professional players.
In its hosting of the ITF Juniors event, Cambodian Tennis Federation expects to provide the opportunity to local junior tennis players to compete against the top-level juniors from abroad. At the same time, the event brings visibility to the next generation of Cambodian tennis players who may consider the path for their future.
Mr. Rithivit Tep, Secretary General of Tennis Federation of Cambodia, thanked ABA Bank for supporting the event and understanding Cambodia’s aim to bring high quality competition to the juniors.
“ABA’s long support has also helped Cambodia become a popular destination for the junior circuit since the focus was shifted away from the ITF Men’s Futures a few years ago”, said Rithivit.
The week-long tournament attracted about 90 participants from 18 different countries. Up to 15 Cambodian juniors were selected to participate in the competition this year. Among the 12 trophies, 10 went to Korean players and other two went to the Chinese female double team players.
