Congratulations to our Girls and Boys 14U Junior County Cup teams as they both qualified for the National Finals being held at Nottingham Tennis Centre from Friday 12th – Sunday 14th May 2017.
Hampshire and Isle of Wight 14&U Girls competed in Woodford Wells, Essex.
In their group F, were Buckinghamshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and South Wales.
Playing 4 counties in 3 days, with 4 singles and two doubles per match, proved to be lots of tennis. However our team - Aisling McGrane, Hannah Smith, Charlotte Howard, Magda Kornijczuk, Alana Unitt and Jasmine Bromilow were ready for the challenge. Captains were Fiona Nicholson and Victoria Hurford.
Hampshire & IOW Girls won 6-0 v South Wales, 5-1 v Norfolk, 6-0 v Buckinghamshire and at 3-3 v Suffolk Magda and Hannah won an exciting penalty match tie-break shoot out to take them to National Finals in two weeks. Well done girls!

The team was: Louis Bowden, Dean Cooper Kirby, Aaron Dawson, Oliver Fernandez, George Russell, Alfie Reynolds. Captains were Paul Scullard and Josh Gook.
