WISDOM NA-ADJRAGO

DIRECTOR, HIGH PERFORMANCE PROGRAMS

Wisdom was born and raised in Accra, Ghana.  At a young age, his parents encouraged Wisdom and his siblings to participate in several sporting activities, which included soccer, table tennis, and tennis. With tennis as a natural fit for Wisdom, this began his tennis career. 

By the early age of 12, Wisdom participated in 2 tournaments a month and aggressively trained weekly both on the court and off the court with fitness.   His dedication and hard work are reflected in his record. He soon became the junior champion at the Koforidua Sports Club and was selected to participate in the 2001 Milo Junior Tennis Open Championship.  His first national win was a 2004 tournament, organized by the Ghana Tennis Federation, where he came in the first place. This catapulted Wisdom’s tennis career and by 2005 he participated in two national tournaments, the Ofori, Donkor, and Dowuona (ODD) Junior Championship, and the Juvita Tennis Championship, where he placed as a semi-finalist in both tournaments.  Needless to say, he returned to the ODD Junior Championship in 2006 to defeat the reigning champion, Kwasi Eyiah in the semi-finals and Bashiru Mohammed in the finals.  

After graduating from Sunyani Polytechnic, Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana, Wisdom pursued his pro tournament career (see highlights below). Wisdom’s exposure to high-level tennis and overall enthusiasm for the sport makes him a natural fit at Tennis Innovators Academy.
