Seaton Tennis Club’s Emma Hurst has recently earned a WTA Singles and Doubles World ranking after a successful few weeks on the ITF tour on grass at Eastbourne, and Surbiton Aegon International Tournaments, writes Belinda Bawden.
Hurst, first year student at Bath University said: “ After so much hard work and training, I am really happy to have achieved this personal goal of mine at Bath this year. I hope to be able to improve my world ranking during the next year.”
In between a busy tournament schedule, Hurst has managed to find time to return to the club, playing for the club’s A teams, supporting younger talent, and hitting with enthusiastic members.
Emma’s power and skills helped the Ladies A team to a victory against the unbeaten league leaders Torquay A and the victory lifts the team into fifth spot in Division One of the Exeter and District League.
Whilst the club’s B teams have struggled with injuries this summer, the rising stars at Seaton are the Ladies C team, which went top of Division Six after an 8-1 victory against Teign Valley B, and the Mixed C team, which is unbeaten at the top of its division in the East Devon League.
