Jeremy Chardy and his fiancee were in Seychelles last week on a private holiday but found time to spend with young aspiring Seychellois tennis players at the Roche Caiman Tennis Courts. Present also were a number of parents and
Garry Albert, the PS for Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine who is the sitting Chairperson of the Tennis Association, and Geovanna Rousseau, the CEO of Sports in Seychelles.
“The enthusiasm of every young Seychelles tennis fan was so evident as they were hitting the ball with Jeremy, and as a Ministry we are happy that we have managed to help coordinate this visit to Seychelles by Jeremy and Susan” said Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine who had met Jeremy when he attended the official opening of the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy last September.
After his time with the youth of Seychelles on the tennis courts, Minister St.Ange hosted Jeremy Chardy and his fiancee Susan Gossage to a Seychellois Creole lunch at the Sunset Beach Hotel at Glacis. “We were seated right on the water’s edge. Seeing the abundance of fish coming to the surface when they were being fed over and above admiring the inviting clear and clean turquoise blue seas surrounding the bar area of the Sunset Beach Hotel made for an ideal lunch time venue” Minister St.Ange said the great Seychellois Creole meal he enjoyed with Jeremy and Susan.
“A wonderful morning and lunch” is how Jeremy and Susan described time at Sunset Beach Hotel, but for the Tourism Minister it goes further as it embraces what is today being referred to as Sports Tourism.
