June 2010 - Eastbourne Trip 2010

During June twenty of our players, coaches and parents enjoyed an inspirational day at the Aegon International Tennis Tournament in Devonshire Park, Eastbourne. The day started well with the youngsters meeting Svetlana Kuznetsova just outside the entrance where they seized the opportunity to have their photo taken with her.

Once inside our juniors had a great time watching and meeting a number of the world ranked players who were competing there. Some of the highlights included meeting Amelie Mauresmo, former Wimbledon Champion, watching Francesca Schiavone, this year’s French Open winner, on practice courts and the opportunity to see James Blake in a closely fought match on Centre Court.

An exciting mens doubles with Murray and Marray just losing out to Golubev and Seppi ended what had been a fantastic day of tennis, ice-cream and meeting some great players.
