INVESTING IN TENNIS
One hundred tennis courts are to be built in Macedonia over the next three years, the government’s Agency for Youth and Sports announced on Tuesday.
It said the object of the building program would be to boost interest in tennis, particularly among youngsters.
“A total of 25 tennis centers, each containing four tennis courts intended for domestic and international contests are envisaged,” the agency`s director Ivica Georgievski told local media during the official presentation of the project.
He said construction of the tennis centers, one for each municipality in the country, would be worth €5 million.
The tender to select construction contractors will be announced soon, the agency said.
Macedonia is not a big hitter in the tennis world. The country's most successful tennis players, Predrag Rusevski and Lazar Magdincev, are not among the top 100 in the ATP rankings.
The Agency is already running a project under which 35 multipurpose sport halls are being built.
MD: Wonderfull! Let's hope this invest will lead to more succesfull Macedonian tennisplayers, so we can compete with the rest of the world in this beautifull sport
