Kenya’s wheelchair tennis team in Turkey for World Cup qualifiers
The Kenyan wheelchair tennis team has arrived safely in Turkey to participate in the 2022 BNP Paribas World Team Cup Qualification.
The showpiece is slated for March 17-21 at the Megasary Tennis Academy in Antalya.
Lawrence Karanja, the squad's head coach, is sure that his team would achieve the best results in Turkey, to bolster their chances of qualifying for the Olympics.
"The training has been really productive and the players have gone through all the paces that we could have gone through and I think they are very well prepared now than they have ever been,” Karanja said.
Last year's event in Vilamoura, Portugal, saw the men's team reach the quarter-finals, while the women's team advanced to the final four.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
