Philta netfest goes to Kalibo

By MST News | Feb. 01, 2013 at 12:01am
Action in the Philta-Palawan Pawnshop Regional age-group tennis tournament shifts to Kalibo, Aklan beginning today with another banner field vying for top honors in various divisions.

The event ending Monday serves as the third leg of the 27-stage, nationwide circuit put up by Palawan Pawnshop and Technosports to help develop the sport and produce future national team players.

“We expect another big field to compete in the third leg and we hope to produce another batch of young but talented players,” said Palawan Pawnshop COO Bobby Castro.

Registration is ongoing with deadline set at 12 noon before the Group 5 tournament, organized by the Philippine Tennis Association, starts at 2 p.m., according to Philta referee and tournament-in-charge Bobby Mangunay. For details, text or call Mangunay at 0195-4046464 or email bobbymangunay@yahoo.com.

For his part, Guillermo Nocom, president of Technosports, exclusive distributor of Babolat, lauded Philta’s continuing effort to boost the development of the sport where Filipinos can be at par with the best, at least in the region.

Events on tap are the boys and girls 12-, 14-, 16-, and 18-and-under divisions and the 10-unisex category.

From Aklan, the circuit moves to Negros Occidental for the fourth leg, a Group 3 tournament, on Feb. 8-11 in La Carlota City with the fifth stage, also a Group 3 event, set Feb. 14-18 in Bacolod City.
