Nigeria sweeps honours at AJTC Qualifiers

After the second leg of the competition, Nigeria, besides wining the team trophy, garnered 13 gold, eight silver and one bronze to emerge the overall winner.
The medals were from the first and second legs of the championship in the various categories.
Togo finished second, with Mali in third place, based on points accumulated after the ITF second leg ranking competition.
Only Senegal did not have any of its players qualified for the AJTC scheduled for Nairobi later in the year in Kenya.
Togo was second in the Team Trophy event while Mali placed third.
The President of the Nigeria Tennis Federation, Sani Ndanusa, said he was very happy with the success of the championship.
He also expressed his appreciation of the championship’s sponsors, saying “without them, Nigeria would not have been able to host the qualifiers”.
Ndanusa however charged the Nigerian players to continue training before the main tournament in Kenya, urging them to be focused and dedicated.
