Kids Show of Skills at Sadili 8-Series Challenge 6

Sadili Oval on Saturday 2nd September 2017 hosted the Sadili 8-Series Challenge 6, a free-entry event that has become a cherished monthly staple for many kids under age 12 in Kibera, as well as Kijiji- a small informal settlement in Lang’ata. The 40 kids were excited to play at Sadili and the tournament went on as planned.

On arrival at Sadili, the kids were first divided according to their ages and the matches swiftly followed. The kids, many of them new tennis learners, kept everyone entertained as they relentlessly tried their best to show their skills in the game.

The tournament organizers, Sadili staff, were satisfied with the games played even though many children didn’t show up for the event. To them, it was fulfilling that the children that participated had a platform to show their talents as they enjoyed themselves.

The Sadili 8- Series Junior Tennis Challenge is a tournament for U6, U8, U10 & U12 kids (all levels), with Tennis Africa Cup ranking. It is great for kids who want to test their games, get out on the court and make new friends along the way. It was initiated by Tennis professional, Dr. Liz Odera.

Run under a Sadili/International Inspiration partnership, this tournament was sponsored by Wilson Sporting Goods, Sadili Oval and Comic Relief among others.
