The leadership of the Ghana Tennis Federation (GTF) joined the Local Organising Committee for the 13th African Games, dubbed Accra 2023, to inspect the progress of work at the Borteyman construction site.
The inspection took place on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, with the President of the GTF Isaac Aboagye Duah, Godfrey Tetteh, a member of the Tennis Development Committee, and 2022 Tennis Foundation Ghana ITF Accra J5 Open defending champion Abubakari Yakubu Lea joining the leadership of the LOC to familiarise themselves with the progress of work at the facility.
The Local Organising Committee, chaired by Dr. Kwaku Ofosu-Asare, is encouraging various sporting federations in the West African nation to join the LOC on their monthly facility inspection visits to familiarise themselves with the projects as well as make necessary inputs.
“These are things that we are encouraging. The rationale behind this is to get all the various federation heads to visit the facilities and make inputs into the construction. NBA Africa has already visited the sites and we will go with the local federation soon,” Dr. Ofosu-Asare told Accra2023ag.com.
After the field visit, the contractors on site delivered a presentation on the prototype of the final project.
During the engagement, the leadership of the GTF suggested to the contractors to consider including three offices to the tennis facility at the Borteyman complex.
