KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 30 – The Tennis Association of Malaysia (Tennis Malaysia) has appointed a new honorary secretary and he is Datuk Sayed Alfeizal Sayed Ahmad who hails from Kelantan.
He is no newcomer to the sport as he was once president of Kelantan Lawn Tennis Association and also an Exco of Tennis Malaysia for several terms.
Sayed was introduced to the Tennis Malaysia executive council by Tennis Malaysia president, Mirzan Tun Mahathir who chaired a recent Exco meeting via zoom. It was attended by all Tennis Malaysia exco members.
At the meeting, the exco approved the financial accounts of Tennis Malaysia for last year although 2020 was not a “financially good year” as many sponsors were unable to continue some of the sponsorship promises, said Mirzan.
”However, Tennis Malaysia managed to pull through with selected specific tournaments that were allowed,” he added.
In the meantime, Tennis Malaysia vice-president (2) Datuk Patrick Liew said tournaments for 2021 have been planned but it all depends on the Covid-19 pandemic situation in the country.
Vice-president (1) Datuk Salahuddin Ahmad touched on the issue of disciplinary cases that have been contained.
Vice-president (3) Johnson Koh’s proposal for the president to appoint women to the Tennis Malaysia executive council as required by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) was unanimously accepted.
At the end of the two-hour meeting, Mirzan called on the affiliates to ensure that all players keep up whatever training they can do during the pandemic and to follow all standard operating procedures (SOP) during the pandemic
