The Sierra Leone Tennis Association, on Saturday 1st February 2020, amended and adopted their Constitution allowing a president to stay in power for three terms, if successful at elective congresses. The amendment of the new constitution took place during their 1st Annual General Meeting (AGM) at their Hill Station tennis Hall in Freetown. At the AGM, the president said they have reviewed some parts of their constitution to work with the international constitutions. Among them, he said in the international constitution the term for presidency is unlimited. The delegates instead voted for three terms rather than unlimited terms in office. He also said a delegate should be a paid up member in a club recognized by the Association. For those aspiring for positions in the national executive he or she must have led his or her club for some years. They all also voted unanimously for the review constitution to be adopted. The review of the constitution was also in line with the new Sports Act policy. Kelvin Keille, president of the Association said they have built a multi-purpose hall at the Hill Station Tennis court and repaired the courts. The Association also paid for eight players to take part in an Africa Youth tournament. The Financial Secretary said they did most of the development activities in a financially constrained situation without subventions from the government.
