Gabriella Lindley, one of the up and coming stars of the Thongsbridge Tennis Club, competed in the 9U girls Lancashire County Tour event at South Ribble Tennis Centre last Saturday. Gabby, the number 2 seed, was in great form on the day. She played 6 matches in a round robin competition without dropping a set, and collected the winner’s medal.
Barney Fitzpatrick travelled to Glasgow for the Scottish Junior Indoors Championship. Barney proved his selection for the GB team well deserved. He won both round 16 and the quarter final matches in straight sets, only dropping 4 games on the way. His hardest match was the semi-final against his team mate Matthis Ross, where Barney eventually came on top after a tough match 6:4, 6:1. Barney completed the successful trip by overcoming local talent Charlie Miller 6:2,6:0 in the final and becoming the Scottish Junior Indoor Champion.
