Exeter Cathedral School Pupil, Sammy, who is in Year 4, represented Devon Tennis at the Under 9 County Cup Regional Group Event in Bath. 
The team of five boys had a busy day and played 22 matches over five hours against four other counties, including six doubles and 16 singles matches. Sammy was selected to play in six matches and was the only one to be undefeated! 
The Devon Boys Team had a fantastic event, beating Somerset 5-1, Avon 5-1, South Wales 5-1 and Cornwall 4-0 and finished the day as South West Regional Champions. 
Sammy’s family has enjoyed supporting him on his Devon Cup journey. Mum and Dad said: “We're both super proud of his achievement and his dedication to the sport.” 
Next for Sammy and the Team is the Regional Finals (South) on 5 June to compete for the Cup – everyone at ECS will be cheering him on.
