La Carlota City hosts regional age-group tilt
THE PHILTA-Palawan regional age-group tennis tournament will stage its fourth leg in La Carlota City in Negros Occidental starting today.
Hoping to bank on the province’s rich athletic tradition, organizers of the Group 3 tourney said they expect a bumper harvest of fresh talents in each age categories.
It has been very inspiring to see more and more players join and compete in the circuit. And we expect another record field this week in Negros Occidental,” said Bobby Castro, COO of the sponsoring Palawan Pawnshop.
Guillermo Nocom, president of the circuit’s other chief backer Technosports, exclusive distributor of Babolat, said they are committed to support Philta’s effort to discover young and raw talents who will then be developed for the national pool.
Registration is open with deadline set at noon today, according to tournament-in-charge Bobby Mangunay. For details, text or call Mangunay at 0915-4046464.
Bacolod will host the fifth leg on Feb. 14 to 18 which is the last leg of the first Visayas swing before the Olivarez-Philta Open age group, inter-collegiate and interclub tilts reel off on March 1 to 17 at Olivarez Sports Center in Parañaque. Marc Anthony Reyes
