Organised by the club's head coach Dave Taylor, there were seven boys and seven girls that took part in the Under-14 event, played as a round-robin competition with each match a quick-fire 'best of five games'.

At the conclusion of the action the winners were Zanna Newsholme and Sam Lister, who will now go on to contest the regional competition in Exeter.

Regional winners from all across the country will then go forward to contest the finals on the hallowed turf of the All England Club in Wimbledon later this summer.

Fancy giving tennis a go? Seaton Tennis Club really does welcome all juniors and adults from complete beginner to superstar!
