Funds threaten Lagos Open tennis



Organisers of the 2018 Lagos Open tennis championships are making frantic efforts to source money to host the tournament.

The ITTF- approved tournament is scheduled to hold from September 29 to October 13 at the Lagos Tennis Club, Onikan Lagos.

The PUNCH correspondent learnt that the event, formerly known as the Governor’s Cup Lagos Tennis, might be called off after sponsors, including the Lagos State Government, failed to provide funds to stage the global championship.
