Over the years, the Prince Dr. Joseph Adewunmi Ademiluyi Tennis Foundation has not only honed athletic skills in young talent, but also instilled values of fair play, discipline, and sportsmanship.

During the press conference announcing the tennis competition, Prince Kanmi Ademiluyi, a representative of the Ademiluyi Tennis Foundation, reflected on the tournament’s commitment to moulding talents into potential stars over the years.

“Witnessing the transformation of these young athletes over the years has been a profound joy. Their growing prowess and passion for tennis are a true reflection of the foundation’s dedication to sporting and personal development,” he said.

In line with this spirit of development and community contribution, Adekunbi Ademiluyi, managing director of Human Manager Ltd., sponsors of the event, highlighted the organisation’s keen interest in fostering the development of young talents.

“We believe that by investing in the development of young people, we are investing in the future.

It is through initiatives like this that we can impart the values of discipline, excellence, and sportsmanship, which are essential for the advancement of our society,” she said.
