CBN Senior Open is one of the most prestigious National Tournaments which has been in existence for 41 years.

David Imonitie holds the record for the most titles won in the men’s singles with seven titles, while Veronica Oyobokia is also the most successful player in the women’s singles category with seven titles.

Oyinlomo Quadre won the women’s singles title in 2019 after Sarah Adegoke pulled out of the tournament citing ‘personal reasons’, but the 2-time champion is back to action this year. Can she reclaim the title from Oyinlomo Quadre?

Will Sylvester Emmanuel successfully defend his title this year? or will Abdulmumin Babalola claim his seventh title to tie David Imonitie’s record?

The 2020 CBN Senior Open gets under way on November 6 through to 14 at the National Tennis Centre, Abuja.
