Last Sunday saw our 10 and Under team playing at home against Canterbury LTC.
Dushan Sreckovic and Ollie Richards took to the courts first to face Savannah Harris and Antoinette Chastang respectively. Dushan played well and took an early lead against Savannah. Although both youngsters played some great shots Dushan remained in control and left the court with a 4-0, 4-0 victory. Ollie took a little longer to settle and adjust his game to the windy conditions.
However he soon got the measure of the weather and won through to take the match 4-2, 4-0.
Inspired by their team mates JoJo Thomas and Stephen Friend were next up. JoJo played Grace Francis while Stephen squared up to Harri Roblin.
JoJo flew out the blocks and quickly took a commanding lead. However Grace fought hard and after some close points JoJo won the match 4-0, 4-1. Stephen , not to be outdone by the others, also played some great tennis to secure a win for The Appeti Tennis Centre with the same score as Oliver, 4-2, 4-0.
After a short break Ollie teamed up with Dushan to play doubles against Antoinette and Savannah whilst JoJo and Stephen faced Grace and Harri. All eight children played some positive points and worked well in their partnerships throughout these games however our youngsters were able to pull ahead and finished the afternoon with a clean sweep having won all 6 matches played.
After a great afternoon of tennis where all the juniors involved were a credit to their respective centres we would like to wish Canterbury LTC all the best in their future matches and say well done to our players on their second victory!
