VICTORIA TENNIS PROGRAMS & ACADEMY
In Kenya and in other developing countries, tennis has been invariably known as a game for the affluent cadre of the society thus the underprivileged children and youths for years have not embraced the beautiful game. This can be plausibly be attributed to rigid and selfish domestication of the game by elite African’s who were inducted, in a very privileged way to the great game by the colonialist.
The scenario has regimented tennis exclusively as a preserve for the rich.High profile academies and high cost of educational institutions continue to patronize the game possessively.
