The ghetto youths welcomed this great development as they had never seen such a valuable open tournament right in their area – very convenient indeed as it cuts off the transport factor as well as very low registration fee of $1! For it to keep running there is need for a prize fund sponsor…its a monthly open tournament. Hope all goes well in the next monthly tournaments! GNKCA call/whatsapp 0773 927 141
