The 13-year-old Raica Coelho dominated the Girls u16 category by only losing two of her 36 games in her three matches.

The Namibian Tennis Association thanked Sanlam for their long running sponsorship of junior tennis in Namibia, while Sanlam reaffirmed its commitment towards tennis in the future.

The next junior tennis tournament will take place in Swakopmund on 19 July. More information can be obtained from ntajuniortennis@gmail.com
