The CEO of one of Ghana’s emerging event companies, Beebies events and wife of the Executive Chairman of McDan Group of companies, Mrs Abigail Mckorley donates jerseys and tracksuits worth GHS11,000 to the tennis 14 years and Under (U14) & 16 years and Under (U16) boys’ and girls’ national teams and the Billie Jean king Cup team.
“Her donation has come at the right time and the board is really excited about this.” – Mr Isaac Aboagye Duah, President of Ghana Tennis Federation.
Mrs Mckorley has been the “chaperone” of the female national team for past 10 years and has always been supporting the federation in diverse ways.
Her support to the tennis federation is due to the exceptional performance displayed by the U12 girls’ team early this month in Togo. U12 girls’ made up of Lisel Ampah, Angel Bagerbaseh and Chistabel who were coached by Yahaya Macauley and Tina Tagoe beat all teams in the championship to emerge winners in the West Africa zone.
The U12 boys’ team made up of Isaac Akuaku, Benjamin Tukpeyi and Gerald Nii Ayi Ankrah came second.
