Another smashing report from proud parents of Sam Rayner, Pete and Rachel, keep them coming! We love to hear all your tennis news :
"Despite a 1st round loss in u14 singles last week at the Tipton Winter open (grade 3), Sam & his partner Max Hingley (both Pershore Futures players) finished 3rd with a play off at Tipton Winter Open and win 4-1 5-3 in u14 doubles, this was after losing a very tight semi final 2-6 6-3 6-10.
They also won their Quarter Final in a deciding match tie break 5-7 6-4 10-8. Sam also played a great match in the u18 doubles with a partner he did not know losing 5-3 4-2 against two 3.2 rated players, they were 3-1 up in the 1st set! (Sam is rated 7.1 & his partner was a 5.2). He will also end the season moving up to a 6.2, which was his main goal for the winter season."
Well done Sam!
