Samm Butler became the new under-18 boys’ singles champion at the British Junior National Tennis Championships, held at Nottingham Tennis Centre in August 2013.
Butler’s victory in the under-18 boys’ singles means the trophy returned to Bath for the fourth time in as many years following the successes of Scott Clayton, Toby Martin and Richard Gabb – all of whom are now playing professionally with the Team Bath MCTA senior squad.
Butler, seeded two, secured a straightforward final victory over Ryan Peniston, the top seed for the event, 6-2 6-3.
The new boys’ under-18 champion, who has trained at Team Bath for six years and attends Ralph Allen School, played at this year’s Junior Wimbledon. He did not drop a set all week at Nottingham and thoroughly deserved the title.
