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.​
