Mini/Junior Tennis Team Events Update
Fourteen Mini/Junior team events took place during February on a Saturday afternoon and during the half-term break. Teams of 3 or 4 children from 8&U to 18&U of a similar standard have been taking part. The scores after all of the team matches in February are:
Racket Ralph - 145 points
The Royal Aces - 142 points

So far just over 100 children from the club have taken part and they will play in this event on a regular basis throughout the year.

Juniors Selected for Ball Crew Team at a Major International Tournament
Three juniors, Bronwyn Burden, Jake Burden and Lissie Durham (see photo) have been selected to be in the ball crew team for the forthcoming Nature Valley Open taking place in Nottingham in June.

This is one of the main warm-up tournaments for some of the world’s top players preparing for Wimbledon. Over 180 children went to the ball crew trials and Bronwyn, Jake and Lissie were selected to be part of the ball crew team, which consists of 75 children. Well done to the three of them for this great achievement. The tournament is running from 8 to 16 June and some of the matches will be shown on TV.
