India to host two ITF junior tournaments allotted to Pakistan

Kolkata, Jan 15 (IANS) New Delhi would this year be hosting two junior championships of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) earlier allotted to Pakistan, an All India Tennis Association (AITA) official said here on Friday.

The tournaments were shifted after Pakistan requested AITA to help them organise the events in New Delhi in July or August as it would give budding tennis talent from Pakistan an opportunity to feature in the tournaments.

“People find it unsafe to go to Pakistan. So we will hold two ITF tournaments allotted to Pakistan in our country,” AITA executive committee member Hironmoy Chatterjee told IANS.

“They have requested us to do that. Depriving the tennis-loving youngsters in Pakistan is not good. They can come here and play in the two tournaments,” said Chatterjee.
