AGE-group netters from as far as Lanao Norte and Cagayan de Oro came to compete in the just-held Cebuana Lhuillier-backed netfest in Valencia City, Bukidnon. And while some of them succeeded in bringing home the bacon, the homeground bets proved equal to the task for this year’s kick-off leg of the prestigious tourney is in full swing in Northern Mindanao.

It was a very tiring leg to start off the Year of the Wood Horse. In fact, we were able to finish it in three weekends or four separate playing days (Jan. 11-12, Jan. 18 and Jan. 25) because of heavy rains spawned by tropical depression Agaton, event organizer Mario Inguito Craiz told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro.

Valencia City-based players simply dominated their foes in front of the home crowd as their promising counterparts from Malaybalay City and Musuan, also in Bukidnon, also shared the spotlight.


Craiz said the inaugural leg of the 2014 Cebuana Lhuillier Age Group Tennis Championship Series also served as major highlight of Valencia Cityís Charter Day Celebration.
