The just concluded 1st Edition of the U-17 Tennis Competition organised by the Deputy Speaker Adamawa  State  House of Assembly Hon Sunday  Peter was tagged  "Catch Them Young".
The  event  took  place  at Yola  Tennis Club Adamawa  on the 12th -16 April, 2016 recorded a bright  future  for Adamawa.
During the occasion, the President of Tennis Club Adamawa Dr. Niyi Oriolowo spoke  on behalf  of the sponsor and  described  Hon.  Sunday Peter as a man worthy  of  emulation, he added that catching  them young is always the best thing to do in terms of developing sports, saying it is good  to start  early. Niyi also used  the  occasion to highlight  some  of the challenges hindering the growth of Sports in Adamawa State. He said  the  delay  in catching  them young is one  of the  factors that militate against sports in the state.

Dr. Niyi further  described  the  edition  as a maiden one and would  want  the  programme  to tell  the world what  we are going through in tennis  development in the state. He  therefore commended the efforts of  the tennis coach, as well as staff of Adamawa State Sports Council. Dr Niyi also described  Bindow Change Mantra as an effective one where people see things happen. He also called on the people of  Adamawa  to support  this  present administration  so as to promote  and achieve the  desired  goals. 

Dr. Oriolowo called  on the  government  to  complete  the sports  complex  along  Numan  road and  also  to  provide  sporting  facilities to deserving  athletes in the state. 
The  event  was  also   categorised  into groups  A, B and  C aging  from  4-17yrs. Medals and certificates were  presented to  winners of  the  competition.
