5th UiTM Johor Inter Team Tennis Invitation Tournament; TEAM KDU – Champion!

Despite being a new addition to Team KDU, the Tennis team started fiercely by clinching the Champion title for Tier 2 during the 5th UiTM Johor Inter-Team Invitation Tournament 2016, held from 26 – 28 February 2016. This is only their second participation after a promising performance during SUKIPT 2016 which was held in January earlier.

This tournament, which is organised annually, sees participation from 12 university and professional teams consisting of university players, national juniors and coaches. The competition is divided into three tiers after grouping round, which saw Team KDU forced to be in Tier 2 after being defeated by Mobile Coach in the Quarter Final stage.

Team KDU bounced back from the defeat and proceeded to win the Semi-finals against USIM Cobra A and sealed the Championship by defeating Nanda Guryea (UTM) with 3-0 point for both matches. It was definitely not an easy journey as Team KDU’s women doubles players, Delizavernne and Laura Liong, were playing for almost 1 hour at noon before clinching the Champion title. As the winner for Tier 2, Team KDU not only brought back a trophy and certificates, but also a winning attitude for their future tournaments. All the best, Tennis Team KDU!
