Nigeria’s prodigious junior tennis talent, Marylove Edwards, will be playing what effectively will be her farewell match in Nigeria in the NCC Tennis League tie between Lagos based Team CBN Features and Team Ndoma- Egba of Abuja taking place at the national stadium Lagos tennis Courts on Saturday.

 Edwards, the national 14 & under champion who got to the finals of the CBN Senior Championships two months ago, will be leaving for America this month to begin what would effectively be her pro tennis sojourn with the famous Nick Bolletieri Tennis Academy.

  Edwards, plays for the CBN Futures and will be showcasing her talent against highly rated Aanu Ayegbusi of the Abuja based team.

Although Team Ndoma-Egba are making their debut in the League, they have a formidable line up that includes two former champions – Thomas Otu and Sunday Maku – and Mohammed Mohammed who is currently in the top 10 of the NCC Rankings.

Two other tennis league matches will take place in Ado Ekiti and Jos.

“It is going to be a great weekend for tennis and we shall use the opportunity of the Lagos tie to send-forth our future world star Marylove Edwards. 

“We hope that tennis fans and stakeholders will come and watch the matches and bid her farewell, in all the senses of that word, with a prayer and a package.” Godwin Kienka, director of the International Tennis Academy which coordinates the league, said.
