INTERNATIONALly ACCLAIMED Zimbabwean tennis official Kudakwashe Kufazvinei was post-humously honoured for his work as members of his former United Kingdom club, War Memorial Tennis Club, constructed a tennis court at his former school – Chiguvare Primary School – in Sanyati.
Kufazvinei, who succumbed to cancer on December 13 2013 in the UK, made a huge impact both locally and internationally.
He handled some high-profile matches.
War Memorial Tennis Club, which is based in Coventry, raised funds for the construction of the tennis court.
And Brian Matthews, a former student of Kufazvinei and three others, decided to honour their coach and constructed the court with the help of the Sanyati community.
“I am happy with the Chiguvare Primary School headmaster, teachers, pupils and the community at large for the reception they gave us,’’ said Matthews.
