17th Head Graphene XT Junior Tennis Satellite Circuit

Wazzup Pilipinas!

In an effort to discover the country's next big local tennis sensations, Globe Telecom is partnering with Head Philippines to bring you the 17th Head Graphene XT Junior Tennis Satellite Circuit which will feature tennis tournaments for young Filipino tennis players at 17 key cities nationwide starting March 10 until June 7.

Present at the press conference held last February 18, 2015 at Contis Bakeshop and Restaurant are Globe Telecom VP for Cluster Sales Albert Tinio, Head Philippines/Dynamics Sports Corporation Managing Director Liza Tang-Yuquico, and Philippine Tennis Association (PHILTA) Representative Chris Cuarto.

Albert Tinio said Globe Telecom participates in major sports activities as sponsor to help manifest their desire to create a wonderful world for Filipinos. They have supported many sports programs and events such as the 'Football Para Sa Bayan' advocacy so they also believe they can make a difference
to budding tennis players who have the innate talent, spirit and passion to make it big in the tennis circuits both local and international.Liza Tang-Yuquico, Managing Director of HEAD Philippines says "At Head Philippines, we believe that we are moulding a lot of young and talented individuals who are just waiting for their chance to be the next Filipino tennis superstar as they gain points and win in local and international tournaments. It is our mission to make Head Junior Tennis Satellite Circuit the springboard for up and coming players. We are aiming to produce from our very own 'backyard' the first Filipino tennis player who will play for the Olympics."

Also present in the press conference was Arleen Lindo, Marketing Manager of Chris Sports, one of the major sponsors of the event since its very first inception, encouraged all attendees to raise the interest of the people, especially our children to sports especially to tennis.

There were also some children of varying ages representing the different age categories that were invited at the press con including Denise Bernardo, JT Bernardo, and Rafael Liangco (there was a fourth one but he had gone home before I could talk with all of them) who shared their enthusiasm in being part of this nationwide tennis tournament. I was able to request them to make a short video invite to encourage kids of the same age range to participate in this event.

This will be the first time the event will be held in several cities outside Manila thus it is a lot more exciting and ambitious. It is therefore hoped that many would take the opportunity to compete so this digital generation where kids have easy access to smartphones, tablets and phablets which can run a great number of game and social media apps, would come out and play just like what we do in our days.

The most prestigious tennis tournament of its kind, the 17th Head Graphene XT Junior Tennis Satellite Circuit has served as the melting pot of local players from different regions to earn ranking points from the Philippine Tennis Association ( PHILTA). The singles and doubles events will be played in different age categories: 10-years-old- and under (unisex), 12-and-under (boys), 14-and-under (boys), 16-and-under (boys), 18-and-under (boys), 12-and-under (girls), 14-and-under (girls), 16-and-under (girls) and 18-under (girls).

Organized by Dynamic Sports Corporation, the 17th HEAD Graphene XT Junior Tennis Satellite Circuit is also supported by Chris Sports, Head ATP by Tennis Balls, Graphene XT, Toalson, Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) and the Philippine Tennis Association (PHILTA), with media partners Sports radio 918AM, Home Radio 91.9FM, Boracay Informer, Todo 88.5 FM Aklan, Power Wheels Magazine, Motorcycle Magazine, Balikbayan The Asian Journal Magazine, and HIP Magazine as well as Participating Sponsors AMAX Inn Makati.
