Ndidi Osaji of Greensprings School has emerged one of the Nigerian flag bearers in the forthcoming World Junior Tennis Championship, following her team’s victory in the qualifier of the West and Central African Junior Championship (Girls U-14).

The qualifying matches were played in Lome, Togo, where she and her team triumphed over the host country, Ghana, and Cameroun.

Ndidi gained public attention after her outstanding performances at various junior tennis championships, including the Central Bank of Nigeria Tennis Championship, Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) Championship, and Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company LimitedS (NEPCo/NNPC) Competition.

The World Junior Tennis Championship provides the opportunity for junior tennis players to be ranked. This year’s championship is scheduled to be held in Morocco on a yet-to-be-announced date.

Head Coach, Junior Team of the Nigeria Tennis Federation, Ubale Abdullahi Mohammed expressed optimism that the girls will make Nigeria proud at the world championship.

The Head of the Department of Physical Education and Sports at Greensprings Lekki campus, Mr Yusuf Ojeyinka commended Ndidi, attributing her achievement to the school’s commitment to extra-curricular activities, including sports.

He assured that the school is committed to making students excel in non-academic competitions.

“I believe that Ndidi will make us proud at the World Junior Tennis Championship, as she is not only technically good but also exudes self-confidence in defeating her opponents.”
