The tournament is being hosted in conjunction with the International Tennis Federation (ITF), the Confederations of African Tennis (CAT) and the Namibia Tennis Association (NTA). NTA vice-president Clive Gawanab confirmed to Nampa that the tournament consists of singles, doubles and group matches.
The singles matches will end today, while the group matches will commence today and end on 15 January.
Gawanab said this is the first tournament of the year and the players will keep playing various matches to accumulate points that will see them qualify for major tournaments such as the Africa Junior Championship that will take place towards the end of this year.
Namibia has six girls and four boys in the u-16 age group, while six of the country's girls and five boys are competing in the u-14 category.
