As part of the Indian lawn tennis team at the South Asian Games under way at Gauhati, our goodwill ambassador Natasha Palha pocketed a silver at the women’s doubles event that took place on 11th February.
Playing with Rishika Sunkara in an all-Indian final, Natasha went down fighting 5-7, 6-2, 4-10 to Prarthana Thombare and Sharmada Balu.
It was not just the women’s doubles that was an all-Indian affair – India made a clean sweep of all lawn tennis events – women’s and men’s singles, women’s and men’s doubles and mixed doubles.
India has truly put its stamp of authority on tennis in the sub-continent- with our Dempo Goodwill Ambassador adding to the nation’s medal haul!
DEMPO lauds Natasha and wishes more power to her dreams to take her game to an even higher level!
