Having beaten their competition in the DOQ tournament last month, six rising Egyptian stars got the opportunity of a lifetime last week when they headed to The Nick Bollettieri Discovery Open at IMG Academy in Florida.
The Nick Bollettieri Discovery Open at IMG Academy, Florida was brimming with young Egyptian tennis players. Having proven themselves in the grueling competition at the Platinum Club in Kattameya back home, hosted by 7 Sports Center, it was time to further test themselves in the prestigious competition in Florida. For four days, the young players were faced by top notch competitors from around the globe proving both fearless and successful. Walking away with second place in the U14 competition was Fares Zakareya and second place for the U16 was won by Hala Hisham, both making their mark on the international front.
It was most refreshing to find the number of Egyptian players participating with Ali Zaghloul and Hala Hisham competing in the U16, Fares Zakaria and Amira Lasheen in the U14 and lastly but definitely not least Karim Ibrahim and Hanya Abu El Saad in the U12 competition.
Just by being there it is enough to put on your tennis CV for those who plan to make tennis their future such an event is pivotal or even to find your kid on a tennis scholarship. Having 7 Sports Centre around with first rate Tennis coaches gets the future tennis stars up and running for these super competitive tournaments. Would be a good idea to start training now seeing that 7 Sports Centre has made it their mission to keep an eye on such international event making sure that Egypt participates.
