JUNIOR TENNIS PLAYERS ON THEIR TRAVELS
16 May 2017
Our junior tennis players have benefitted from playing in tournaments away from Johannesburg. A group went to the SA Nationals in Bloemfontein which is the "blue ribbon" event of the year for juniors, whilst another group took part in the Secunda tournament.

At Nationals they were accompanied by ex professionals Louis van Huyssteen and Lloyd Segal who were the perfect combination for our young players. Daniel Markham won the under 10 championship in a group of 28 players and this is a big title for the club and Daniel.

Lilitha Ndungane made the quarter finals of the girls under 12 and in the under 14 age group Wian Roothman, Rynhard Roothman, Luke Davies and Annika Gertenbach made the main draw through the qualifying event with Wian getting through one round of the main draw only to lose to the eventual winner.

All in all it was a good showing from our young players and the experience they gained will hold them in good stead for the future.

At the Secunda tournament we won six championship titles.

Petros Hatzipanis defeated fellow club member Christopher Stocken 64 61 to win the under 16 title and then brothers Petros and Konstantinhos Hatzipanis won the doubles title.

Chiara de Wet won the girls under 16 title easily beating her opponent for the loss of just two game sin the final. Dina Tchelet had a see-saw final in the girls under 12 but won 60 06 10 6. Daniel Markham won the boys under 10 singles and then teamed with Jamie Kodesh to take the doubles title as well.

So two good tournaments for our future stars and our thanks go to the coaches who travelled with the players and assisted during these two tournaments.
