Speech By The AG. MD Of TOR At The 4TH Annual Farmers Day TOR/SAHARA Tennis Tournament

Our Distinguished Sponsor – Representatives of Sahara Energy, Chairman of the TOR Tennis Club, Chairmen of the various Tennis Clubs in Tema, Executives’ Management of TOR present, TOR Staff, Members of the Tennis Team, Friends from the Media, Ladies and Gentlemen

I welcome you all to the Annual Farmers Day TOR Tennis Tournament.

All too soon the sponsorship of the Farmers Day TOR Tennis tournament is in the fourth year.

Our corporate sponsorship drive has been and continues to be in the area of health, education and community development.

TOR has been associated with a lot of health initiatives including the Heart Foundation, the Cardiothoracic Centre and building a District Maternity Clinic for the Kpone community at a cost of 750,000 Ghana Cedis as its contribution towards Ghana achieving one of the Millennium Development Goals of reducing maternal deaths.

We believe in the importance of promoting Good Health and Wellness through physical activity with sports such as Tennis. This belief is shared by all of you. Physical activity is good and plays a vital role in achieving quality health and wellbeing.

There are people who hold the view that, after a good game of tennis the beer neutralizes the exercise, but I assure you its better to do some form of exercise and have a beer than to do nothing

Through the partnership with Sahara Energy we bring to our community and our staff the commitment of our company to our wellbeing and health and our development.

We assure you of TOR’s commitment to the promotion of sports in our community and Ghana in general

I am happy to see young people who are interested in Tennis and have taken serious interest in it.

I trust that our corporate values of team spirit, integrity, professionalism and fair play in every sport will guide and inspire the tournament.

I am confident that the TOR Tennis Club will make us proud. May the best team emerge the winner.


Thank you and have a wonderful Tournament.


Happy Farmers Day!!!!!!!!!!
