‘Mini— Wimbledon’ tennis at Highlands


Who said Zimbabwe cannot host its own Wimbledon event?
Think again as Highlands Sports Club will host a ‘Mini-Wimbledon’tennis tournament on Sunday.
Highlands Sports Club Tennis Centre director of coaching Alison Vaughn said young players who train at the centre will play doubles matches.
Players will have an opportunity to play against their friends and family in a fun filled event that is expected to capture the imagination of the young players.
In true Wimbledon style, all the participants will be required to wear Wimbledon colours, White, Green or purple.
The organiser of the event hopes that the competition will inspire young tennis players to take up tennis professionally at a time when the sport has been struggling to reach the levels of the Byron and Wayne Black inspired Davis Cup team.
