Sun City Tennis Pro at Prestigious Nike Tournamenton December 14, 2011
Sun City’s resident tennis pro, Stephen Motshegoa, was lucky enough to assist with the organisation of the prestigious Nike Junior Tour International Masters tournament for the 3rd year in a row, in 2011. Held at the Sandpiper Bay Club Med in Florida, USA, the tournament showcases the world’s very brightest young tennis players.
Stephen rubbed shoulders with some tennis greats and brought back event experience that should aid him in even further improving Sun City’s tennis offerings, as the resort constantly strives to better its events and activities.
Stephen’s Overseas Experience
During his trip, Stephen was heavily involved in the event preparation and organisation. During the tournament, event coordinators had nothing but praise for our favourite tennis pro’s efforts, stating that, “He has been very hard at work setting up the courts and surrounds for the tournament and it is all looking very good. Stephen is again doing very well with all aspects of the organisation.”
Stephen was lucky enough to meet a host of tennis celebrities during his tournament stay. He was even able to capture a snap with 4-time grand slam-winner, Mary Pierce.
Sun International is extremely proud of Stephen for flying the Sun City flag overseas and hopes that the experience will help the resort in its efforts to cement its place as the go-to tennis destination in South Africa.
Special thanks also goes out to Bruce Davidson (Director of the BLD Group) for continuing to afford Stephen this opportunity on a yearly basis.
