Pupil Wins Under 18 Welti Open Tournament

A pupil from the Schools Tennis Academy is celebrating today after triumphing in the Under 18 Welti Open Tournament, an LTA recognised event which attracted a number of the leading young players in the region.

Jo Bowens achievement in capturing the title was all the more impressive, given that at just 16 years of age, she was one of the youngest competitors in the tournament.  Nikki Hoy, Director of the Tennis Academy, was understandably delighted with her protgs success. This really is a fantastic effort by a Year 11 pupil in such a strong competition.  I was particularly impressed by Jos tenacity in what was a marathon semi final, and by her strength of character to come through an equally long final against an opponent whom she had not beaten in fifteen previous attempts.   

The School will be hosting a LTA recognised Open Tennis Tournament between Wednesday 28th July to Saturday 31st July for young tennis players aged between 8 and 16 years. Details and application form can be found by clicking here.
