Tennis may be included in 2021 Pacific Mini Games

NORTHERN Marianas Tennis Association official Jeff Race says the National Park Service is likely to get the funds needed to resurface the American Memorial Park tennis courts in time for the 2021 Pacific Mini Games which will be hosted by the CNMI.

Race wants tennis to be among the sporting events of the 2021 Pacific Mini Games. Northern Marianas Sports Association president Michael White said initially, tennis was not on the list because there was a need to resurface the tennis courts which required funding.

White said he was pleased to hear the good news from Race. “We have to tell the Pacific Games council members next April when they meet here on Saipan what sports we are going to offer. And hopefully, we will have a definite commitment to resurface the tennis courts.”

As for weightlifting, the CNMI doesn’t have the money to buy weights or to bring them to Saipan.
