TENNIS Fiji is taking advantage of the school holidays, reaching out to more rural areas as part of their development program.

A group of officials were at the Nuku District School earlier today organizing activities and Tennis skills lessons for the young children of Naselai Village and neighboring areas.

Tennis Fiji development officer Lemeki Veimateyaki said tennis in the central division was not as popular so as part of their development program, the team had decided to take it out in the villages around the central division.

“It is quite difficult to run the program here around Suva because this sport is mostly popular in the west but we are glad that we are able to come and do outreach in areas such as this.

“One of our development officers are from this village so we were glad we were able to come down and do outreach program here,” said Veimateyaki.

The program continues tomorrow at Nuku District School in Tailevu.
