Come ya, play with Carlos Moya !
Nike to host Moya tennis clinic in Chennai on 5th January 2005

Nike, the world's largest sports and fitness company, is organising an exclusive tennis clinic with Carlos Moya for forty children at the Presidency Club in Chennai on January 5, 2005. Moya, currently ranked 4th in the world, is fresh from his triumph over Andy Roddick in the Davis Cup, which helped Spain in their win over USA.

The Nike-Moya Tennis Clinic complements the efforts of the company in promoting tennis among the youth and underscores its commitment to developing the sport in India. Earlier this year, Nike had organised the Nike Junior Tour in India along side 20 other countries in the world.

Registration for the 'Nike-Moya Tennis Clinic' starts on December 22nd and closes on December 28th, 2004. The registration forms for the event will be available at Sports Locker (Khader Nawaz Khan Road) and Nike stores on Nungambakkam High Road and Spencers Plaza. Nike retailers in Chennai will also carry a special collection of tennis apparel, footwear and accessories to coincide with the clinic.

Forty lucky tennis enthusiasts will be selected from the registrations received and the children attending the clinic will get first hand tips from the former world number one. The event promises to be a fantastic opportunity for the children to exhibit their skills and take Moya's advice on improving their game. There will be an interactive session where Moya will share his experiences and the participants can ask him questions about the game.
