Kallie's Tennis School held a tournament over the weekend (24-07-2010) at (Sport Klub Windhoek). Great thanks to Hotel Thule who made this successful tournament possible (58 total entries).
Jean Erasmus was the nr 1 seed player in the tournament and that is his current Namibian ranking as well. However, he lost his fist set in the quarter finals against former top Namibian player JP Huisch. This was world class tennis and the match of the tournament. Jp outplayed Jean in the 1st set but the second set belonged to Jean and the final was 10 - 8 in favour of Jean. After the match several young players ask for autographs and photos with the two top players. Jean is currently playing tennis in America and the sky is the limit. Jp`s good form is attributed to his mental attitude in the past he played not to lose and these days he plays to win. This is a great tip for all young players.
Michael Muller (Nr 1 u/18 Nam) lost in the Semi Final (6 - 0 6 - 3) to Henco Serdyn (Nr 3 Namibia). The final did not live up to expectations as the injury to Henco`s wrist took the sting out of his dangerous forehand. (6 - 2 6 - 3).
The results were as follows:
The gold medal went to Jean Erasmus who won against Henco Serdyn in the finals 6-2 6-3. The bronze medal went to Michael Muller..
The gold medal went to Kuzai Toto, the Silver medallist was Juliane Schuckmann and the bronze medal went to Mayton Hoff.

SKW PRO TENNIS ACADEMY SUCCESSFUL TOURNAMENT SERIES
Pro Tennis Academy's quest to develop and spread the game of tennis to all Namibians has grown from strength to strength as being witnessed over the past few years. The tennis series that was held during the month of July was a proven fact. The July tournament series consisted of two PTA mini-tennis tournaments and two PTA Junior tournaments which also includes the midi-court events.
The uniqueness of these PTA tournaments is that they cover all the progressional stages of developing a complete player in a fun and healthy competitive environment. The other major benefit competing in these events are that the players compete in categories according to strength and not age, e.g. beginners, intermediate and advanced groups which give them a bigger field and variety of exposure said Elizma Nortje, SKW Pro Tennis Academy Director and Head Coach.
Norman Makuwasa, PTA coach and tournament director also explained that these tournaments prepare the players to compete in the Namibia Tennis Association (NTA) national tournaments and that he is looking forward to more of these tournaments that are held week in and week out in order to raise the levels of competition and tennis at large. A big thank you and acknowledgement to Wimpy who sponsored these events with Wimpy-vouchers which are indirectly motivating and encouraging the players to compete and participate in these tennis tournaments.
The next PTA mini-tennis tournament will take place on the 14 Aug '10 followed by a PTA Junior tournament on the 21 Aug 2010. To enter contact Pro Tennis Academy at: 0812400560

Henco Serdyn retires his opponents at Retirement Fund Solutions Tournament.
Kallie’s Tennis School held a tournament over the weekend (26-06-2010) at SKW. A great thanks to Retirement fund Solutions who made this successful tournament possible (50 total entries).
Henco is back with his powerful serves with great placement. Some of his serves went like bullets going through the fence even hitting the spectators. Throughout his matches he did not drop a set and this gave him an advantage in the final. Michael Muller who was also a finalist however was not as fresh because he had to work extremely hard to reach the final playing tough matches in the quarter finals against Justinus Van der Westhuizen, a player who is going to beat the best soon. And in the semi final he played against Eric Ver Burg “the lion” who’s power almost matches Henco`s , but Eric lost in the 3rd set against Michael because his consistency was the determining factor.
The Namibian Student team also entered the tournament and this served as good preparation for the CUCSA Games which will be taking place in Botswana where all SADC countries will participate.
The various divisions were namely, the Advance Group, Advance Girls; Intermediate Group and the Full Court Group. The winner of the Advance Men’s group received N$ 500.00
The results were as follows:
Advance men’s group: The gold medal went to Henco Serdyn who won against Michael Muller in the finals 6-1 6-1. The bronze medal went to Eric Verburg.
Advance Girls: The gold medal went to Nicola Henning ,the runners up position went to Ndapewa Nakatana and the bronze medal went to Melissa Kuphe

Highly Competitive Pro Tennis Academy Tournament - 1 April 2011
Pro Tennis Academy’s quest to bring the game of tennis to another level came to the test with their recently hosted Junior Tournament at the SKW tennis club in Windhoek. This very successful tournament was special in the sense that all 3 categories of Pro Tennis Academy’s developmental stages participated on the same day. It was mini-tennis, mid-court and full court players competing for the honors. The tournament was characterized by extremely close matches where one point made the difference between gold, silver or bronze position in all three of the sections. Hosting all three categories on the same day worked out perfectly for players and parents all to see how players progress from one stage to the other until they play on full court. The full court section players took this tournament as a warm-up tournament leading up to a Namibian national tournament which will be held in Swakopmund this coming weekend. Pro Tennis Academy will have a couple of its juniors participating in the National event , but also players that will be facing the challenge of participate for the first time in a NTA national event. by Christa Fourie
