M’lang ju­nior net­fest to­day


Pa­tri­cia Velez shoots for another pair of vic­to­ries as she head­lines the huge field vy­ing for top hon­ors in var­i­ous di­vi­sions in the Palawan Pawn­shop-Palawan Ex­press Pera Padala re­gional age group ten­nis tour­na­ment be­gin­ning to­day at the M’lang Ten­nis Club in M’lang, North Cota­bato.

Velez swept the girls’ 16- and 18and-un­der crowns in last week’s PPSPEPP leg in Gen. San­tos City with the Davaoeño ace in­stalled as the player to beat again in this week­end’s Group 3 event hosted by Mayor Joselito Piñol and pre­sented by Tech­nifi­bre.

Aside from the Davaoeño net­ters and M’lang lead­ing play­ers, the four­day tour­na­ment, sanc­tioned by the Philip­pine Ten­nis As­so­ci­a­tion headed by pres­i­dent and Parañaque City Mayor Ed­win Oli­varez, drew par­tic­i­pants from Koron­adal City, Tacurong, Sultan Ku­darat, Di­gos, Malita, Ki­da­pawan, Kaba­can, Pikit and Glan, all rar­ing to show­case their tal­ents and gain rank­ing points.

“This marks the third year we’re hold­ing a PPS-PEPP leg in M’lang where the sport has a huge fol­low­ing,” said Bobby Cas­tro, COO of Palawan Pawn­shop.
