What a month for British Tennis and Team Bath MCTA!

It is amazing to sit here writing the July blog knowing we now have a Men’s Wimbledon Champion, well done Andy Murray from everyone at Team Bath MCTA Tennis.

IHPC Academy

After five years of representation in the Junior Wimbledon Championships it was great to see four senior players involved in the ladies event, Sam in singles and Lisa, Mel, Anna all in doubles. All these Ladies have built great experience for the future.

In addition, Sam Butler and Anna Brogan made their debuts in the Juniors. Anna picking up a valuable doubles win in the process. Sam Butler lost to eventual Champion Gianluca Quinzi.

All other academy players are preparing for the ITF event in Newcastle and or Grade 2 events before the National champs in August.

A special mention must go to Mens and Ladies teams for qualifying for the AEGON  National Club Finals weekend with the Girls team making it to the grand final and losing out to Cumberland Club, London.

Well done to Alex Walker, Lisa Whybourne, Brig Folland, Chole Moxham and Harriet Blacker plus all girls that contributed to the team over the last few months!

Our Mini World Tour ‘Wimbledon’ red event ran very well, with players competing in the fun competition towards their league totals. Our schools roadshow is now finished ,with six primary schools visited, three tennis festivals held at the centre and two AEGON schools games competitions hosted in the building – with some great feedback, and seen as a great success from our team of coaches.

Over 1000 children picking up a racquet in school, many of which for the first time – a legacy we hope to extend again into next year.
