“Our female players participating in the camps have proudly achieved great success and won prestigious titles during the previous editions of AWST. This could not have been possible without training under and benefiting from the experience of some of the most prominent clubs in the world, apart from their dedicated efforts. With the added advantage of the training our players will receive at the camps, we look forward to achieving greater success at the upcoming edition of AWST,” she concluded.
