On the weekend of April 18th and 19th, King’s Rochester Sports Centre was delighted to host several LTA tennis tournaments. The Centre’s brand new LTA-standard tennis courts saw players from across southern England play county-standard tennis in four Grade 4 Under 12 and Under 14 LTA events. Some of the boys and girls who played are ranked within the Top 50 in Great Britain and within the top 5 in their county. Families, coaches, other tennis enthusiasts and Kent LTA representatives enjoyed two full days of excellent tennis in the Kent County Summer League tournaments and the finals of the Kent County Winter League Club Team event.
The tournament winners of Kent County Summer League events were:
U14 Boys - Luca Pevan (from Rochester)
U14 Girls - Phoebe-Mirelle Ecuyer-Dale
U12 Boys - Alexander Ceban (from Maidstone)
U14 Girls - Kristina Paskauskaite
Winners of the Kent County Winter League Club Team Finals were:
