Thanks to generous sponsorship by PwC, Cayman’s junior tennis fans can look forward to another year of challenging tournaments.

PwC has again stepped up to sponsor 2019’s series of seven two-day junior tournaments, known as the PwC junior circuit, for players aged 10&U, 14&U and 18&U.

In 2018, the circuit attracted nearly 60 contestants, most of whom played in at least four tournaments. In addition, PwC’s sponsorship is used by the Tennis Federation of the Cayman Islands to finance the Elite Squad, a group of top players from each age group who receive weekly specialist coaching.

“We are pleased to support another year of the Cayman Islands’ PwC Junior Tennis Circuit.  The Circuit is a way to encourage and reward the dedication that our young players put into improving their game year-round. As well as giving the kids a challenge and a lot of fun, these tournaments encourage and develop good sportsmanship and fitness, as well as pushing mental and physical limits. These multiple positive features are the reason we continue to be a long-standing sponsor,” PwC Partner Craig Smith said.

Meantime, Susan Lindsay, the president of the Tennis Federation of the Cayman Islands (TFCI), said her organisation is very grateful to PwC for their continued support of junior tennis in Cayman. The TFCI runs the PwC Junior Circuit and the Elite Squad.

“PwC’s is a major contribution. It would not be possible for the TFCI to run these events, which dozens of juniors thoroughly enjoy, without PwC’s generous funding.”

Mr Smith and PwC’s marketing and communications manager, Leslie Wilson, were proud to present trophies to winners of the PwC Junior Masters Invitational, 2018’s concluding tournament, at the Cayman Islands Tennis Club in South Sound.
