As part of a scheduled tour of some African nations, international tennis champions, Olympic Gold winners and newly crowned US Open champion, Serena Williams and elder sister, Venus, are scheduled to visit Lagos on October 30.
While in Lagos, the dynamic duo will inspire, motivate and mentor young Nigerians through a tennis clinic and an exhibition match which will also be their first on the African continent.
Tunji Adeyinka, the programme coordinator said Venus and Serena’s story of passion, determination, hard work and self-belief serve to boost the morale of athletes and business people alike.
The event is scheduled to take place at the Lagos Tennis Club in Onikan, Lagos from October 30th to November 2nd.
Also lined up as part of their itinerary, the Williams’ sisters will visit South Africa in November 2012 to help launch the “Breaking the Mould campaign.”
Their visit will include an exhibition match at Ellis Park in Johannesburg on 4 November (to be preceded by a wheelchair tennis match), a coaching clinic in Soweto and a gala dinner at Monte casino on 3 November.
