Northumberland Boys and Girls 10U teams are heading to the National finals after winning their respective regional events to earn their places amongst the best eight counties in Great Britain, out of over 80 counties who attended qualifying.
The achievement is a remarkable one for such a sparsely-populated county and is testament to the hard work the players and coaches have put into a stellar group of players.
The girls, captained by James Newman, overcame Lancashire, East of Scotland, Cumbria and South of Scotland to qualify. The team featured Aimee K, Elena B, Paige C and Teddy P.
The boys, captained by Jordan Simpson, also won all of their matches with a team of: Kouros A, Matthew A, Oliver C and Stephen W.
James Newman, Girls' Captain said: "The girls had some very good performances and despite an edgy match versus Lancashire, we were just able to bring it together for an excellent shoot-out victory".
The national finals for boys and girls take place at Sunderland Tennis Centre from 8-10 June. Get down and support our teams!
