(CNS Local Life): For the ninth consecutive year PwC is sponsoring the Tennis Federation of the Cayman Islands. The money supports the federation’s national junior circuit in which players in three age divisions (10-, 14- and 18- and under) compete for national ranking points in a series of tournaments throughout each year. About 40 youngsters take part in the series, which culminates in a Master’s Championship towards the end of the year.

The top three ranked players in each division get the chance to join the Elite Squad, also funded through PwC’s sponsorship. Dale Avery, of the Cayman Islands Tennis Club in South Sound, runs the squad. During 90-minute training sessions on Friday afternoons, players work on technical, tactical, physical and mental aspects of the game.

Susan Lindsay, Tennis Federation president, said of the sponsorship, “We are delighted that PwC has continued to support our juniors. This year we have had many new young players competing in the 10 and under division. Throughout the age groups the parents and spectators at each tournament have seen some nail-biting matches and the level of play across the board is improving year on year.”

Craig Smith, partner at PwC Cayman Islands, added, “We are very proud to be associated with this series and the efforts being made by the Tennis Federation. It’s quite rewarding to see the number of kids coming through and the strides being made. We look forward to the programme’s continued success.”
