Thanh Nien won two trophies at the Ho Chi Minh City Journalists Association tennis tournament that ended at the Hoang Thien Club in Ho Chi Minh City on Sunday.

Duo Quang Thong and Minh Tan of Thanh Nien won the under-45 men's doubles championship after beating the pairing of Hoai Bao and Phu Truong from Ho Chi Minh City Television (HTV) in the final.

Thong then paired with Phan Huy Khang from Saigon Commercial JS Bank (Sacombank) to take the Newspaper-Enterprise men's doubles championship, defeating Ly Minh Triet of the Voice of Vietnam (VOV) and Tran Ngoc Tuan from Trang Sport - a sports items store.

VOV also took home two trophies after Vo Thu Ha paired with Le Hai from Nong Nghiep Viet Nam (Vietnam Agriculture) newspaper to win the Leaders' Men's doubles championship after beating Duong Vu Thong of the Journalists Association and Ta Van Doanh from Giao Duc (Education) newspaper.

VOV's pairing of Thu Ha and Vu Thong then grabbed the over-45 men's doubles championship after beating Le Van Phu-Le Minh of HTV, to whom they had lost in the group stages.

The most surprising event was perhaps the victory of Dinh Ngoc Quang of the HCMC Police newspaper, who won the men's singles championship after beating strong rivals including three big names from HTV, two of them - Duc Phat and Anh Tuan - in the semifinals and the final respectively.

Many players from HTV advanced to the semifinals and finals but the only trophy they won was the mixed doubles.

Duo Ngoc Minh and Cong Khoi of Hoang Thien Club won the Enterprise men's doubles title after beating An Dien and Hong Thach from Becamex in the final.

Main sponsors of the event were PV Gas, Becamex, Nam A Bank, VN Land, Sacombank, Vietravel, Tanimex, Trang Sport, Quoc Khanh Construction Co., event-organizing firm EEC, Viet Gift, Thanh Lam Sports and the Hoang Thien Club.
