During his three-day trip which began yesterday, Haggerty interacted with the Việt Nam Sports Administration, the city’s People’s Committee and the Việt Nam Tennis Federation (VTF) for the AGM programme, which is scheduled for August.

He visited the Phú Thọ Tennis Club, which hosts the Junior Tennis Initiative project under which ITF assists member nations with tennis coaching for junior players between the ages of 6 and 14.
