Half term has been a busy time for our players both at home and away.
Away from home our Academy juniors were competing at Wilton and Bromley. Over the week a number of our players put in some good performances but special mention should go to Jamie Wallace, Spencer Pells and JoJo Thomas.
Spencer was playing at Wilton where he reached the 16 and Under consolation final without dropping a set. In the final he met Kieran Macarty and after a very closely fought first set lost 7-5, 6-0.
Just a few miles away Jamie was competing at Bromley where like Spencer he too reached his 14 and under consolation final in straight sets. Jamie played some fantastic tennis against Alex Walters, a higher rated player, but unfortunately just lost out on taking the title 7-6(3), 0-6 1-0(8).
JoJo was also playing at Bromley where he reached the final eight out of 32 in the 9 and under. He was the lowest rated player to reach this stage which was a great achievement as this was his first tournament in this age group. He then rounded up the week by returning to Bromley for their orange matchplay where he won all five of his matches.
At the centre the week started with some of our orange ball youngsters taking to the courts. Some great matches were played with some very close results. The next day saw our youngest competitors in a red ball tournament. Will Gee and Stephen Friend won through to meet each other in the final. After a great battle Stephen took the medal 10-7.
