“We were supposed to start the competition early in the year but we moved it to June because of the Coronavirus restrictions,” Lae Tennis Club president Glenn Cabasug told The National.
“Thanks to PNG Tennis Association for meeting all the requirements and obtaining approval for its programmes from the National Control Centre.
“Our club is affiliated with the association which is happy with what we’ve been doing here.
