The Bahamas Lawn Tennis is encouraging its athletes to stay ready duringthis global crisis.

We believe if our athletes continue to practise the drills, shadow their moves and condition their bodies they will come out stronger and ready to meet the challenges ahead.

Here are four featured athlethes who are staying ready.

"Even though we are quarantined there are always things we can do to improve. Stay inside, stay safe and continue to work at your craft."

Sydney Clarke

"Being physically fit is great for our overall well being because it helps the body in many ways. No matter what happens in life you must always be prepared for its obstacles"

Anthony Burrows Jr.

Kofi Bowe
One of our top tennis junior players who has represented the country internationally, Kofi is from Freeport and tells us about staying fit and his faith in God:

"Our current state of isolation and confinement has been extremely difficult for me. But being able to take part in some physical activity gives me a mental and physical break. Situations like the existing COVID-19 pandemic will not last forever; my faith in God tells me that trouble will not last always.

This is why I try to maintain the best physical condition possible so that when this is all over I am ready to attack any challenges regarding my future in tennis."

The BLTA will continue to feature our athletes in the upcoming weeks. We applaud their efforts to stay in shape despite the current restrictions due to the pandemic.

Stay safe, stay home and stay ready.
