Player News:

Congratulations to Year 5 and 6 for completing the Doubles ATA Tennis Tournament – Bring on the Singles!

Congratulations to Alfie for reaching his first ever final in the Portsmouth 12&U at Grade 5.  He had to get through a very tough semi final against the Hampshire & IOW number 8.  The score was 1-4, 4-3, and Alfie won 11-9 on championship tiebreak!  Alfie was exhausted for final, but still battled to the very end, coming back in the second set to go to tie break but unfortunately lost 1-4, 3-4.  Well done Alfie!

 

Tip of the Week:
