The Quorn Family Tennis Cup, an informal competition sponsored by Quorn in association with the LTA, was held at Rye LTC for the first time on Sunday 28 April. Juniors aged ten and under played doubles with an adult family member, all using 21-23 inch rackets and red balls (full size but soft and designed for juniors to learn with).
The format was fifteen-minute timed matches, played as a round robin with tie-break scoring. All matches were played in a fantastic spirit with a very healthy competitive edge to them. Playing with red compression balls creates long, exciting rallies, great teamwork and lots of fun.
The winners, Daisy and Joshua Edmondson, and runners-up Nick and Eddie Baxter report back to LTA and are eligible for an invitation day, coming up soon. This includes a visit to an LTA Summer Grass Court event with the opportunity not only to see the professionals play but also to play on the same grass themselves.
