Ball Boys & Girls at Prestigious Tennis Tournament at Loughborough University

On Sunday 11 February 12 juniors from Kibworth Tennis Club were invited to be the ball crew for the ladies and menís singles finals in the £25,000 GB Pro Series Event taking place at Loughborough University. The finalists had a world ranking between 196 and 642. One of the lady finalists had reached the last 16 of Wimbledon in 2014. The juniors were given training before the finals so they could carry out their duties like the ball boys and girls at Wimbledon. The matches were played in front of a crowd of about 300 so it was a great experience for children. The photo shows the ball crew with the menís finalists.
