SOME local players have been drafted in the West Pacific team for the Pacific Oceania Junior Championship which will be played in Lautoka in August.

Players such as Ruby Coffin, Mulan Kamoe, Shivneel Chand, Krishan Raju, Vienna Kumar and Namratta Nand excelled at the West Pacific Regional Championship in Lautoka last week.

Fiji Tennis Association vice president Naga Reddy said the standard of the sport was high at the week-long event.

Reddy said International Tennis Federation Pacific Oceania development officer Darran Wrighton was doing a marvellous job.

"Ruby played well combining with Mulan in the girl's under-16 doubles," he said.

"She played in the U14 singles and came second. So in the doubles she played against players older than her."

The focus will now shift to the North Pacific Regional Championship in Guam.

That will be followed by the East Pacific Regional Championship.
