On Saturday 19 January Islington Tennis Centre and Gym hosted a Grade 5 9U Orange tournament at the tennis centre.

The tournament saw big numbers with 32 players (16 girls and 16 boys) take part. We had 52 entries but could only take 32 players because of court space, so it was a huge success, with some of the best 9U players in Middlesex and beyond competing in the tournament.

Of the 32 players, 8 were Islington Tennis Centre and Gym TRAIN players from our own squads.

The tournament was run by our tournament partner, My Tennis Events, and their CEO Sabrina Stocker, who made the final 5 in this year’s edition of BBC programme The Apprentice. My Tennis Events have further tournaments scheduled at Islington Tennis Centre and Gym on 5th May, 2nd June, 7th July and 14th July.
