Renowned tennis star Natasha Siku has been elected as the Vice President Technical of the Botswana Tennis Association following the association’s elective Annual General Meeting (AGM) in recent weeks.
Siku is a passionate player who has always been held in the highest regard within the association given her ability to articulate herself in the most composed manner in terms of administrative matters and public speaking. Her leadership qualities have also seen her being handed over coaching duties for regional junior championships for the national tennis team.
Siku is the youngest member of the newly elected executive committee. The newly elected committee also consists of Oaitse Thipe who was elected as the president, Tefo Tefo (VP Administration), Atang Mokgware (Director of Finance), Katlego Keagoletse (Director of Public Relations and Marketing), Osefelepelo Mathe (Director of Coaching and Sport Development), Masego Moshe (Director of Tournaments Administration and Development) and Ari Kalmari (Director of Facilities Maintenance and Development).

Earlier this year there were unconfirmed reports that the BTA had not presented audited financials, the association was also accused of not providing national team players with the best resources for international tournaments, the new committee will be tasked with addressing the aforementioned issues and a lot more.
