MAKATI--In an effort to discover the country's next big local tennis sensations, Globe Telecom partners with Head Philippines in staging the 17th Head Graphene XT Junior Tennis Satellite Circuit which will feature prestigious tennis tournaments for young Filipino tennis players at 17 key cities nationwide from Mar. 10 until June 7.

Globe Telecom vice president for mobile cluster sales Albert Tinio, Head Philippines/Dynamics Sports Corporation managing director Liza Yuguico, and Philippine Tennis Association (PHILTA) representative Chris Cuarto graced the pre-event press conference held on Wednesday at Contis Restaurant.

"Because of their love for tennis, Globe would like to make inroads in the said sport through our team-up with Head Philippines on the Junior Tennis Satellite Circuit," said Tinio.

"It is our mission to make Head Junior Tennis Satellite Circuit the springboard for up and coming players. We are aiming to produce from our very own ‘backyard’ the first Filipino tennis player who will play for the Olympics,” added Yuguico.

Arleen Lindo, the marketing manager of Chris Sports, one of the major sponsors of the event since its very first inception, also joined the press conference and encouraged all attendees to raise the interest of the people, especially our children to sports especially to tennis.

Young tennis players Denise Bernardo, J.T. Bernardo, and Rafael Liangco also came to the event and shared their enthusiasm in being part of this nationwide tennis tournament. 

This will be the first time the event will be held in several cities outside Metro Manila.
