The KSRA 19 & Under junior tournament took place on 25th March 2017 at Parklands Sports Club. This was the first junior tournament of the year preceding a list of junior tournaments that will take place every month. The Harrow sponsored junior tournament attracted a good entry of juniors from different institutions in Nairobi especially schools such as Banda School, Peponi School, Braeburn and other clubs.
The Matches were played on a best of three basis and all the draws were round robin. We had very competitive matches especially in the Girls category, 11 and Under Boys and Girls and Under 19 categories. It was very encouraging to see a huge entry amongst the girls who showed enthusiasm and promising future.
The winners of various event categories were as follows:
19 & UNDER – WINNER – SHIV MALDE
R – UP – KUSH SHAH
GIRLS – WINNER – MAYA SHAH
R- UP – NAIYA GOSRANI
14 & UNDER – WINNER – ILYASEEN NIMJI

It would be important to note that KSRA will enforce the new rule of use of protective eye wear in all the upcoming junior tournaments. All junior tournaments will be used for ranking.
KSRA would like to thank Harrow Sports, Parklands Sports Club for hosting the junior tournament, the players for taking part and assisting with the marking, the coordinator Elizabeth Mulwa, organizer Mr. David Mulwa and all the parents and spectators who were available to cheer. We look forward to many more junior tournaments throughout the year.
