SANDAKAN: Reigning Sabah Games (Saga) singles champion Harish John Manoharan, the top player from Kelab Tenis Remaja Sandakan (KTRS), has recently added another feather to his cap when he bagged the most prestigious title at the Sabah School Sports Council’s state level tennis championships – the Under-18 boys’ singles crown.

His exploit was successfully emulated by younger brother Jonathan Joshua who won the Under-12 boys’ singles title at the same tournament.

“We were delighted that seven of our players from KTRS were selected into the Sandakan District Team that took part in the MSS Sabah tennis championships in Kota Kinabalu this year. 

“They gave their best and contributed 2 golds, 3 silvers and a bronze medal for the Sandakan District Team,” said KTRS President Taren Sunil Manoharan in statement.

At this year’s MSSS Championships, Kota Kinabalu emerged as overall champions with Sandakan in second place.

At the tournament Sharrvineswaran A/L Uigneswaran and Ngui Larm won silver medals losing to Jonathan Joshua and Harish John in two all-Sandakan finals while Jashnavissri A/P Uigneswaran was also a silver medallist in the Under-15 girls’ singles event

Meanwhile Rishegeswaran A/L Uigneswaran won a bronze in the U-15 boys’ singles event.

Taren Sunil pointed out that the 2019 results were an improvement over last year’s results when they won 2 gold, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals.

Noting that the standard of competition is getting higher each year, Taren Sunil also expressed his confidence that the game of tennis will get more popular as more youngsters are now picking tennis as their game of choice. 

Meanwhile KTRS players are already preparing themselves for coming tournaments such as the different legs of the Sabah Junior Tennis Tour and the LTAM National Junior Tour. Their players have also been selected to represent Sabah at the coming National level MSSM tennis championships.  

“In keeping with our intention to expose our players to more tournaments, our juniors will be participating in as many events as possible,” said the KTRS President.
