Female and Male participants numbering over 95, registered for the one day Clinic which was aimed at introducing new players to the sports, improving the skills of those currently playing and encouraging them to progress further.
More participants registered for golf (85) while the rest entered for tennis.
At the end of the six-hour long session which included talks on Women and Sports, Etiquettes and Rules, and hands-on technical knowledge on sports handled by professionals, participants returned to their bases with new knowledge about Golf and Tennis.
One of the participants, Esther Oluwatoyin Aluko, commented about her experience: "it has helped me a lot to interact, meet with people of my age, people older than me and I am comfortable in this place. I'm playing for the future."
Male Captain of the IBB Int'l Golf and Country Club, Sen Emma Anosike, offered a waiver on use of range facilities and balls to the participants furthering their interest in the game.
Lady Captain of the Club, MaryRose Richard-Obioha, reaffirmed the objective of the Lady Section which is to bring more women into Golf and other sports through the Clinic and other programmes.
Immediate past President of Ladies Golf Association of Nigeria, and member of Nigeria Golf Federation, Ekanem Ekwueme, who is also a past Lady Captain of the club, said about the organisation of the Clinic: "Huge congratulations to the Lady Captain IBB IG&CC and Team for a well-organised and educative outing. I was sure glad I could make it".
In continuation of the programmes bookmarked for the year, Lady Captain MaryRose Richard-Obioha, will be leading the Ladies Section of the club and some members from the Men Section, to an orphanage home visit in Abuja, to commemorate the Children’s Day celebration, this Thursday.
