Ritzbury powers “Ritzbury All-Island Inter School Tennis Tens”

Symbolising its unparalleled efforts to empower the budding
sportsmen of the nation, Ritzbury, Sri Lanka’s favourite chocolate brand of Ceylon Biscuits
Limited (CBL), powered the recently held All-Island Inter School Tennis Tens in collaboration
with the Sri Lanka Tennis Association (SLTA).
Held from 4th to 7th November 2022, the Ritzbury All-Island Inter School Tennis Tens
returned after a break of two years. All matches were played at the SLTA’s Aggreko Court.
Played in three age groups – Under 7, Under 8, and Under 10, over 1,300 players from 120
schools across the Island took to the courts to display their colours and set forth on a voyage
to foster and develop their future careers in professional tennis.
Ananda College hauled Gold Medals in all 3 Boys’ categories for Red ball, Orange ball and
Green ball. In terms of the Girls’ categories, Jaffna Hindu Primary School emerged as the
Gold Medal winner in Red ball, whereas Ladies College and Visakha Vidyalaya won the
Gold Medal in Orange ball and Green ball, respectively.
Commenting on Ritzbury’s contribution, Nilupul de Silva, General Manager Marketing – CBL
Foods International said “We are delighted to sponsor the Ritzbury All-Island Inter School
Tennis Tens as we firmly believe that the sportsmen and women of our country should be
given the right platforms to further their skills. This is a proud moment for us as we hope to
give this sport the extended reach that it needs in Sri Lanka.”
Additionally, SLTA President Iqbal Bin Issack said, “Tournaments such as these are
essential to empower the new generation of tennis players while promoting the sport of
tennis across the country. Having Ritzbury as a valuable sponsor will certainly gave the
tournament an additional edge in terms of visibility, ultimately ending up in the sport gaining
even more traction in Sri Lanka,”

chocolates. With the sponsorship of this sporting event, Ritzbury hopes to set up the stage
for young athletes to shine and build their future. It is expected that the sponsorship of this
