KENINGAU: Several top tennis players from the Manoharan Junior Tennis Academy (MJTA), the coaching unit of Kelab Tenis Remaja Sandakan (KTRS), were in Keningau over the weekend to play a few friendly matches with local players.

Among the hosts were IPG Keningau lecturer S.P. Subramanium and other tennis enthusiasts.

The visiting team were led by Taren Sunil Manoharan, president of Kelab Tenis Remaja Sandakan (KTRS). Also present was their patron Manoharan A/L Ramasamy.

KTRS brought along their key player, Harish John Sunil Manoharan who is the reigning SAGA men’s singles champion as well as the Under-16 singles and doubles gold medallist at last year’s 6th Leg of the Tennis Malaysia National Junior Tour. Also with the team was Jonathan Joshua, one of the State’s top Under-12 players who had won several gold, silver and bronze medals in the State and national circuit last year.

“I thank Subra and our Keningau friends for the great time on the tennis courts. However, I would like to add that the visit also provided a wonderful opportunity for us to talk about matters regarding the game that we all love so much,” said Taren Sunil.“We discussed possible ways on how to promote and develop the game especially at the junior level,” added Taren Sunil.

“I was delighted to learn that Subra will be doing a three-year PhD research on tennis in Sabah and I wish him every success. KTRS will be more than happy to give our input if requested,” said Taren Sunil.

Taren Sunil also said that he was happy to learn that Subra and his fellow players were also considering setting up a tennis club in Keningau.

He said that the establishment of more and more tennis clubs in Sabah is a good indication that the game is steadily strengthening its foothold in Sabah.

“Hopefully with this growing popularity, tennis will be a regular part of Sukma instead of being relegated to a “self-financing” event where it is out of the medal count,” he summed up.
